You want to know about me?
I'm an English teacher by trade (please don't hold that against me), a mum 24/7, a supermarket owner by day, a chronic arachnophobia, and a writer by night. I rarely sleep. I live in rural Western Australia with my hyperactive husband and three mostly-gorgeous heroes-in-training.
I've been writing since I was 17 when I broke up with my first boyfriend (at the time I thought he was The One and was hugely devastated in the fashion of all 17 years olds). For some reason unbeknownst to me, I turned to writing as a form of therapy for my broken heart. It was enlightening to realise that with writing I could create whatever ending I liked. I wrote the story of me and The One and actually ended up killing him off. The writing was therapeutic, the story was cringe-worthy but I had caught the bug.
Almost a decade later, after many, many attempts at writing different types of novels, I joined Romance Writers of Australia. Finally I learnt there was more to writing a book than just typing out random thoughts - I learnt about craft, conflict, consistent characters, etc - and I also learnt that I LOVED contemporary romance and that was what I wanted to write. I'm super happy to be writing sassy, urban romances for Carina Press and small-town romance for Mira Australia.
I hope that if you decide to try one of my books - about pretty normal people creating pretty amazing happy ever afters - that you enjoy it and pine a little when it ends :-)
