Hi there, I write contemporary romance novels with strong, alpha heroes and spirited, modern heroines they can’t resist. Which, for me, is a dream come true!
As a child I was rarely without a book in my hand and from primary school age I wrote personal journals, school stories, more journals, first chapters of books, screenplays, even more journals, etc, etc… as I got older I used study as a way to satisfy my creative hunger, never imagining that I could treat writing as a serious vocation. But the desire to do so never went away, and eventually, after a myriad of dissatisfying jobs, too much study, and a fair amount of travel, I decided to pen three chapters of a novel and send it out to the Harlequin Mills & Boon slush pile. I then did a ten day Vipassana retreat after which I sat down to write more stories. The Vipassana retreat was instrumental in my writer’s journey because when the editors at Mills & Boon requested the full manuscript of those three chapters, I was – after many years of self-doubt – finally in the right headspace to take up the challenge to pursue my secret passion.
I currently live in Melbourne with my husband and three children, two cats and three lovely chickens that cluck and follow each other around all day long!
When I’m not writing I read, watch movies, attempt to fit in exercise, travel, and spend time with my family and friends. I love to hear from readers, so please feel free to drop me a line anytime, either via my website or on Facebook.
