I love writing books because I get 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. 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, change management marketing and events management. I have also had a lifelong love affair with writing, and have been actively writing fiction for the last twelve years. I have written quite a few books so far, including a YA fantasy/ adventure series, a number of picture books, and I am working on a Historical Fiction Drama.
I am passionate about helping children, tweens and teens discover the joy of reading, and love visiting schools to get students excited about books. I also often write about these issues, providing practical advice and tips for parents to help support them as they navigate their families reading journey.
