Welcome! I'm an Australian children's author writing diverse stories of nature, magic and history. I am represented by Golvan Arts Management My debut middle-grade novel - an Australian historical fiction time-slip adventure, set at Mt Buffalo, inspired by and featuring Guide Alice Manfield, will be published in 2023, by Riveted Press!
I have a PhD in Psychology and worked in mental health for many years. On my blog I write book reviews, feature other Australian authors, and share my own books and writing. I am available for author talks and workshops. I am also a freelance writer and social media manager and you can see more here. Shop at my little Books, Tea and Vintage shop here.
I've had type 1 diabetes since 1979 and live with anxiety and ADHD. I like to include characters in my stories who are neurodivergent and/or who live with physical and mental health conditions, out in the world, having adventures. I'm passionate about inspiring action for our planet and encouraging people to understand how important nature is to all of us. Animals and the environment feature in all of my stories.
I look forward to sharing stories with you, because they really can change the world.
