I love books - reading them, writing them and helping children discover and love them, too.
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.
After leaving school, I completed a Bachelor of Arts in Modern Asian Studies and later a Postgraduate Degree in Organisational Communication. Since that time, I have enjoyed supporting businesses and their people experiencing change.
About 11 years ago, when my first child was still a baby, my love affair with writing began. Since then, in between working part-time and parenting a brood of scrumptious children, I have been writing during little stitches of "free" time in coffee shops, kitchen tables, libraries, and my study. I am currently completing my four-book YA series, which I am trying to find a publishing home for, so they can take flight into the world. Watch this space.
I am passionate about helping children discover the joy of reading, and encouraging their parents to support them. I enjoy visiting school children to inspire and educate, and I have lots more plans to help in this space.
I believe that it's important to keep being inspired in life. I am inspired by all the things that bring light into life: the natural beauty in this world, the seasons that blow in and out, true-love, forever friendship, hope, music, kindness, space, possibilities, and every itty-bitty ounce of my children.
Thanks for dropping by.
