I love writing books because she gets to create worlds where anything is possible. I believe it's so important to escape into books and let our imagination fly. This gives us the time and space to explore the world in new ways and learn about our place in it.
My passion for writing and being creative started in my early childhood where I grew up on a farm. My imagination grew wild in the old farm house, with creeks to swim in, friends, horses, space to dream, and sisters aplenty. As I grew older, I experienced the ups and downs in life, and discovered that life is like a patchwork quilt and it needs to be stitched together with courage, friendship and persistence. Thanks to these experiences, I am now able to tap into my imagination and thread my books with these empowering themes.
Tertiary qualified, I have gained extensive work experience in communication, marketing and events management.
I have had a lifelong love affair with writing. For the last twelve years, in between working part-time and parenting a brood of scrumptious children, I have been working on turning my passion for writing into my career.
I have finished a four-book YA fantasy, adventure series, a number of Picture Books, a Chapter Book series and am working on a Historical Fiction Drama. I have many more books that I can't wait to write.
I am also passionate about helping children, tweens and teens discover the joy of reading, and love visiting schools to get students excited about books. I write about these experiences in my blog.
