I love my boys and family, and my chooks for their cheekiness.

I like to write children's fiction with a message to pass on, and short stories for adults. I practiced as a fine artist many years ago and would like to illustrate my work some day. Away from work and family, I like to run and swim, and practice bikram yoga.

At the moment I'm working on several children's stories and a collection of short stories for adults that is close to being published called 'Snippets of Sadie'. I've had two short stories published to date:
* 'My favourite teacher taught me to grieve' in the What my favourite teacher taught me anthology (2005), Sea Change Publishing, Sydney.
* 'Disconnected' in the Beyond Words Anthology (2010), Williamstown Literary Festival, Melbourne.

Away from writing, I work as a consultant in stakeholder relations and I sometimes get to combine my stakeholder engagement work with my writing and fine arts skills.
