Hi everyone, welcome to my author page.

Thank you for following my journey in chasing my dream!


Who am I?

I am a Mum of 2 gorgeous boys, a wife, a full-time music specialist and a passionate writer.

I also taught early childhood for many years which helped me explore my love of children's literature. 

In fact, I've loved reading ALL my life. 

My favourite place to visit, as a child, was the local library. I used to spend hours upon hours exploring all the beautiful books! 

Some of my all-time favourite books that I enjoy reading as a Mum:

Time for Bed - By Mem Fox

The Gruffalo & The Gruffalo's Child - By Julia Donaldson

Winnie the Pooh - by A.A. Milne

A Bear called Paddington - By Michael Bond

Reading as a teacher, some of my favourites are:

Wilfred Gordon McDonald Partridge - By Mem Fox

The Very Hungry Caterpillar - by Eric Carle

The Tiny Seed - By Eric Carle

Anzac Ted - By Belinda Landsberry

What I enjoyed reading as a child:

Tikki Tikki Tempo - By Arlene Mosel

Charlotte's Web - By E.B. White

Anne of Green Gables - By L. Montgomery

Heidi - By Joanna Spyri

Leo the Lop - By Stephen Cosgrove

(I still have this book on my bookshelf ... from 38 years ago!)

Where am I from?

I was born in Zimbabwe but have lived in Perth, Western Australia since I was four.

Why do I write?

I have been passionate about reading and writing for as long as I can remember.

I wrote and designed my first book at the age of 8 and have been dreaming of becoming an author ever since.

I write because I want to share beautiful words and stories with the world.

I write because it gives me joy!

Interesting facts!

  • I have a beautiful golden retriever named Teddy.
