Australia’s brightest new star writes stories from the heart…
Thanks for stopping by! I can’t think of a better job in the world than my own. I get to spend my days creating characters and stories that people love to read.
My lastest book is Hold On To Me and it’s out now. I have two books out this year: Flame, an ebook that will land on July 5, and my next full-length book, The Three Miss Allens, which will be released on October 24, 2016.
I first experienced the thrill of being published when I was fifteen years old and an Australian magazine published a short story I had submitted. The editor wrote, “We think you ought to look out in the future for the name of its young author.”
Life got in the way of that writing career and, in the years in between, I studied journalism at university, worked as a television and radio journalist, a speechwriter, a publicist, a communications consultant, a political adviser, and a public servant. Not to mention mum to three sons, chef slash caterer to the three sons, taxi driver to the three sons, volunteer and problem-solver.
A few years ago, I woke up one day and realised I’d spent most of my working life writing for other people. So, I decided it was finally time to tell stories of my own.
I’m now published with Harlequin MIRA in Australia and Tule Publishing in the United States.
When I’m not writing, I spend time with my husband, and together we are raising three very tall sons in what we call The Land of the Giants. We chase our disobedient spoodle, Charlie, whenever he runs away, which is often and, in our spare time, we like to drink a good South Australian wine with our lovely friends.

Even sweeter than champagne and chocolate, and that’s saying something. And I’ve just typed them on my next full-length novel for Harlequin MIRA, The Three Miss Allens. This is a big book about… read more here.
