About Me

Behind the Words

I was born in the Mallee at Hopetoun and grew up on a wheat farm outside a small town called Beulah. 

As a child, I was fascinated with stories, reading on my own well before I went to school. When I didn’t have my nose in a book, I spent my time drawing or writing.  I had two dreams: becoming an English teacher and writing picture books for children.  

Fast forward several decades, I am now juggling the roles of full time teacher, mother, performer, and author!

In my spare time, I love creating artworks and spending time on my bush block with my husband, my two beautiful children and the ever-growing menagerie of chickens, ducks, dogs, and cats that share our home. 



Latest Titles and Information


Mallee Sky

The first people of the land call the Mallee "Nowie". It means sunset country.

When the sun goes down, the red heat of the day bleeds into the sky and sets it on fire.

Mallee Sky, my first children's picture book, can be found in store or online.
