I've just finished reading (Outback Hero) and I look forward to more from this author. Strong characters, beautifully romantic ending...the author really brings these to life.
Thank You!! This story (The Haunted Garden) captured my seven year old's attention like nothing since Harry Potter! He was captivated with the mystery, and his sensitive soul felt deeply for the character's heartache. A beautiful Aussie story for primary aged children.
(on Loving Lucy) The pace was just right, the story engaging, and I felt like I could read beyond the ending of the book, follow the characters into their lives and find out more about them and their futures!
As a child, I was always creating and scribbling. The first typewriter I used was an old black Remington in an agricultural farming office where my father worked. I typed letters to my mother and took them home.
These days, I still write some first drafts in longhand on plain old A4 lined notepads, which I then type up and begin the editing process but often now write directly onto my laptop.
I guess I'm a romantic at heart, always believing that any couple I write about are soul mates and will be together forever, and love to showcase our beautiful country in my books.
While my husband and I have travelled extensively, I have lived my whole life in the Wimmera wheat belt plains of Western Victoria. I have two adult daughters and five grandchildren.
I live on acreage in a passive solar designed home, surrounded by an Australian native bush garden. When I'm not in my office writing, I'm an avid reader, crochet afghan rugs and play an electronic keyboard.
I love hearing from my readers. If you have any comments or queries about any of my books or writing, please message me below.
