I write children’s books. Currently I am working on a six-book series of action adventure stories for 8-10 year olds.
I love stories based on real-life, where the characters face personal challenges they must overcome to win through. Book written by other authors I have read recently and enjoyed include: Huda and Me by H. Hayek and Matty Forever by Elizabeth Fensham
I was born and raised in Melbourne and have lived on the Gold Coast for 10 years. I lived and worked in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates between 2006-2010 and continue to visit annually.
I studied at Gippsland CAE and QUT culminating in being awarded a PhD in 1998. I have worked at QUT and Griffith Universities and managed a Registered Training Organisation in Logan. I have written academic and research papers and non-fiction textbook chapters.
I won an essay competition as a five-year-old (Mum helped) and again in Year 11. In 1998 I won Best Paper in Education in Multiple Sclerosis at the Annual Meeting of Consortium of MS Centers USA.
I am passionate about education and ‘getting people reading'. I write children’s books in the hope that I can play my part in preventing low literacy in young people and adults.
I love to hear from people who read books written for upper primary school, middle grade kids and young adults.
My favourite feedback is from kids about what they are reading.
