Hi there!

Welcome to my little corner of the interwebs. I am the wearer of many hats: author, editor, journalist, crazy dog lady, runner, hoarder of vintage frocks, cheeseaholic, Anne of Green Gables tragic, 1920s obsessive. (I am also a wearer of actual hats. People should wear hats more, don’t you think?)

Mostly I write words. Here’s some more details about that…

I announced my intention to be a writer to my family at the ripe old age of seven, largely because of my dual obsessions with Anne of Green Gables and Murder, She Wrote.

In my early twenties I did what so many young Aussies do and moved to London for a year – but accidentally stayed for five. Many of my experiences in the UK helped to inspire my novel Be My Babyfirst published as an ebook in 2014 and now in print.

Novel number two, The Ex-Factor, followed in 2015 and then my first non-fiction book, Incredible Dog Journeys, arrived in 2016.

In 2017 I’m thrilled to share that I’ll have a new dog book, Dogs with Jobs, AND a brand-spanking new contemporary romance novel, Two Weeks til Christmas, on shelves in time for the festive season.

I’m also a multi award-winning freelance journalist with 20 years’ experience on newspapers and magazines in several countries, as well as an experienced sub-editor and copywriter. I’ve taught journalism, too.

And I run the manuscript editing and editorial consultancy business Manuscript Makeover. You can hire me to edit and/or write things for you — get in touch via the contact form and we’ll chat!

Oh, I look after the media and publicity for Romance Writers of Australia as well!

Told you — many hats!
