About me

I was born in Australia and studied history and politics at the University of Tasmania. I’ve worked as a hotel cleaner, a cosmetician in a major department store, a bookseller but most properly as a journalist/researcher for the Australian Broadcasting Corporation where I met my husband, also a journalist.

We now farm in Tasmania, growing superfine wool. I have two adult children, two dogs, too much garden and maybe too little time to write.

I write both historical fiction for which Gisborne: Book of Pawns received an Honourable Mention in the 2012 Golden Claddagh Writing Contest, and historical fantasy for which A Thousand Glass Flowers received a silver medallion in the 2012 Readers’ Favorite Book Awards. Most recently, both books have been nominated for further awards in the USA.
