I have a wonderful and fun filled life, I love to write, exercise and learn amazing new and exciting things. Everything started with a beginning.....in my case, when I hitched a ride with my fun-loving, and adventure-filled parents to the sunny state of Queensland, Australia. It was there that I completed most of my education.
Besides learning that boys don’t have cooties, and that Algebra wouldn’t kill me, I pointedly set my path, in school I focussed and had great success in Art and English-based subjects, and won numerous awards for my efforts.
After high school I went onto study Graphic Design and Illustration at James Cook University, furthered my studies at the local TAFE college with an Interior Design course, and then undertook a three-year Design course at Rhodec International in London.
Clearly I cannot sit still. I now write fanciful fiction novels in my spare time finding creative new ways to scare myself and others in the dead of night, promote girl-power with gritty action sequences and, of course, highlight teenage idiosyncrasies with hard-hitting hormonal moments of lust.
I still reside in Cairns, travel as much as I possibly can to new and wonderful places overseas, procrastinate constantly and also study nutrition and try desperately to avoid the delicious temptation that is the peanut butter aisle at the supermarket.
