I am a multi
award-winning Australian author who has been published by traditional publishers since
I love to
write both historical and contemporary western romance, either with or without suspense
I also write women in jeopardy stories, and this often involves
murders or stalking, or both. My female characters are always strong and feisty, and sometimes they
save the men!
I’ve taught writing for many years, and have written several non-fiction books about writing. I’ve
worked as an editor for publishers, coached writers one-on-one, and have appeared at writer's
conferences in Australia and New Zealand.
I have been married to my own real-life hero for 43 years. We have two grown children and six
Our household would not be complete without our wonderful pets, which includes two elderly cats and
our beautiful dog Bindy, who loves long, leisurely walks. We are also fostering a puppy, who will
ultimately go to a young girl with severe Autism.
My hobbies are tenpin bowling and papercrafts, and surprisingly, going to the gym.
