 All my life, I’ve wanted to write a book; and I did.  I started as most writers do – with a blank page and a sense of uncertainty.  But I kept at it, and once my determination overtook my feelings of self-doubt, a complete manuscript emerged. Initially, it was my intention to self-publish my non-fiction self-help book, but to my delight, and without any former published works, or formal writing training, I was offered a publishing contract.  For the next six months, I worked alongside the staff of Rough Draft to launch my book, Diet Tips for Busy Chicks. read more

I was offered a second book deal for my self-help series and began writing, but I couldn’t ignore the fiction manuscript I had abandoned years earlier.  The characters would not let me be, so I chose to follow my heart, leave behind my non-fiction works and focus on my debut fiction manuscript, The Golden Gown, which is nearing completion. read more

The idea of my first novel came to me many years ago when I learned of the thousands of babies that had been taken from their young unwed mothers here in Australia and adopted or sold to married couples.  What I uncovered haunted me. A story line began to emerge and my characters evolved.  With my love for fashion, it seemed only natural that my protagonist, Clara Parris, would follow a career in Haute Couture fashion – the creation of exclusive clothes of original design and high quality. 

 When I’m not writing, reading, or researching, I work in the healthcare industry.  I live in the beautiful Yarra Valley of Melbourne with my gorgeous husband.  We love to visit our grown-up kids and our two awesome little grandsons. We collect (lots of) books – old and new, fossick for old LP’s, shop at farmer’s markets and vintage stores, and travel whenever we can. But my greatest passion aside from writing is of course…..FASHION.
