I was born on the edge of the outback in NSW, and from there I pursued life from the hot, red dust of cattle country to our cities and small country towns. I’ve mustered sheep on a horse and a motorbike, spotlighted for foxes and learned to shoot a rifle, dived the Great Barrier Reef and surrounding islands, speared fish, swam with sharks and dolphins, avoided sea snakes and moray eels, and taken free rides on sea turtles. Australia is such a beautiful country.
Reading and writing have always been a vital part of my life. I’m always reading something, and I’m pretty much always writing, too. I’ve written contemporary romance, and suspense/thrillers with a touch of romance and I’m currently writing a romantic suspense.
All novels are a challenge to write, and it’s exciting to write about something that’s an integral part of our world, love and romance. I love to create strong feisty heroines who know what they want and who also meet their Mr. Right whether they initially believe it or not
