I’m a writer of all kinds of stories, from fantasy and science fiction for young adults to history/mystery and romance for adults. I’m also a mother, of five adult sons, and Nanna to four grandsons. I live in central Victoria, Australia, in a regional city–big enough for shopping and not too big.
When my youngest son started school, after many years at home, surrounded by children, I went back to school too. I studied Art and Design and found I was the only one in the class who actually enjoyed the classes where we had to write, rather than draw or paint! I went on to a writing and editing class and then to university, where I graduated around the time my son finished high school! I loved every minute of it. Well, almost.
Since then I’ve written a non-fiction murder, based on my university research, as well as a fictionalised account inspired by that. I’ve just completed the third book of a rural romance series (Red Dust) called Red Wine and Summer Storms–the first is Stony Creek and the second is The Road to Karinya. They’re all stand alone novels, with some characters and places crossing over. For more details of this series and my other books see my ‘Fiction and Non-fiction’ page or visit my author pages on Amazon or Amazon UK.
As a self-published writer most of my blogs are about the trials and tribulations of self-publishing, as well as the joys, and I hope to impart some useful information for others.
