Welcome

Well hello there!

Thanks for visiting my website where you can find out some things about me, and the books I’ve written. I’ve been a professional writer (which means I get paid for it!) since I was 18 years old. I’ve written for newspapers big and small all over the country – from The Age in Melbourne to The Mornington Leader - a little eight-page paper in my hometown. I’ve written for lots of magazines, for websites and sometimes just for the fun of it! The first thing I ever had published were the results from the local bowls club when I was 15. Each week I would ring the club president to find out the results of the latest game, then type them up on my trusty typewriter and deliver them to the newspaper office (email hadn’t been invented yet!) I felt so famous when they were published with my name on them! I started writing books in 2007 and have had eleven published since then. The first seven were for adults and then in 2014 I had four books published in Penguin’s Our Australian Girl series. Writing kids’ books has been my dream since I was eight-years-old, and it’s so exciting to finally be doing it. I’m now working on a couple of new books, which I’ll tell you about soon! I’d love to hear from you so hop over to the contact page and send me an email.
