About Me

As a writer, I lead an extremely exciting life. When I'm not base jumping, playing my guitar and singing for a sold-out crowd, or having tea with the Queen... Okay, all of these things are lies.

The truth is, I live on the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia, with my husband and son and you'll most likely find me with my laptop on my lap and a coffee in my hand.

Muttering and mumbles will come from my lips as I ask my characters to stop being difficult, and I won't even notice you've entered the room because I will be in my own little world. Only when I finally tear my eyes away from my screen would I notice there is a stranger in my living room and begin to wonder what you're doing there in the first place.

So to prevent any heart attacks, I ask that all stalkers please refrain from coming to my house. Thank you in advance. ​

If you do have stalkerish tendencies and would like to follow me, you're more than welcome to below:​
