I am a multi award-winning Australian author who has been published by traditional publishers since 2003.
I write both contemporary and historical western romance, either with or without suspense elements.
In addition, I write romantic suspense books with kick-ass heroines!
I’ve taught writing for many years, and have written several non-fiction books about writing. I’ve worked as an editor for publishers, coached writers one-on-one, and have appeared at writer's conferences in Australia and New Zealand.
I have been married to my own real-life hero for 43 years. We have two grown children and six grandchildren.
Our household would not be complete without our wonderful pets, which includes two elderly cats and our beautiful dog Bindy, who loves long, leisurely walks. We are also fostering a puppy, who will ultimately go to an Autism school.
My hobbies are tenpin bowling and paper crafts, and surprisingly, going to the gym.
