I love writing because I get to create worlds where anything is possible. I believe it's so important we can all escape into books where we can let our imaginations fly. This gives us the time and space to explore the world in new ways and learn about our place in it.
I was shaped as a writer by my childhood. My imagination grew wild in the wide-open spaces on a farm in the Queensland countryside. As I grew older, I experienced the ups and downs of 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 writing with these empowering themes.
I'm also passionate about helping children to read frequently - forging a life-long connection with books. I blog about this, amongst other things, and provide practical advice for parents to help support their children's reading journey.
I've completed a number of children's books and a women's fiction manuscript that I'm trying to find a publishing home for. My writing would appeal to readers who enjoy layered, lyrical fiction with a big heart.
