From a young age, I have loved stories. I remember going to story time at the library, watching live theatre and my parents reading to me. At school I wrote short stories and poems and worked on the school magazine committee.
Primary teaching allowed me to share my love of reading, writing and storytelling with the younger generation.
I was passionate about being a primary teacher but this was not enough. After seven years in this profession, I wanted my words and voice to reach a larger audience all around the world. Writing books allowed me to do this.
I write contemporary realism and my novel are Behind the Mask, Bon Voyage!, Dance Demons and Outback Wonder. I have been fortunate to undertake Bryce Courtenay’s and Fiona McIntosh’s Master Classes. These courses further inspired me to follow my dreams. I also have attended Hazel Edwards, Alison Goodman and Jen Storer courses.
I have a passion for travel and have visited many countries in the world and seen and experienced different cultures. Another passion of mine is dancing. I have learnt many styles jazz, tap, ballet, contemporary, funk and in the last few years I have been learning Latin American. Last year I completed my Gold medal in this dance style and now I am in the process of training for my Latin Gold Star medals.
I also enjoy travel sketching, theatre, movies and exploring new places.
I hope to inspire others through my writing and spread sunshine and inspiration.
