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!
Did you know that:
I have a beautiful golden retriever named Teddy.
I met my soulmate, Craig, on a holiday at Rottnest when I was 36. I married him last year.
I am a mad keen lover of Kombis...my Mum and Dad used to own one.
I speak French (almost fluently.)
I play guitar, piano, ukulele, drums, violin and most percussion instruments.
I would love to learn the cello!
I love to travel and I love being underwater.
I love scuba diving and I recently dived with manta rays!
I love words that sound beautiful. Like "PANTOUFLES" is French for slippers (weird...I know!)
