Hello and welcome to my website. I hope you’ll visit often. I’m an Australian, award-winning children’s author with over 100 books published, and my writing ranges from picture-books to novels, poetry to short fiction and information books. Many of those have been translated and distributed across the world.

I came to writing for children as an adult, mainly through my love of reading. My first job was as a Primary teacher but I’ve been a fulltime writer now for over twenty years. Writing is my job and my passion.

I grew up in Brighton, South Australia and now live near by, in Glenelg, with my husband, Jon. Our daughters, Natalie and Cassie are both grown-up with families of their own.
