I write children's adventure stories and have published three. Velvet ball and The Broken Fairy, Star-Crossed Rascals and Molly Gumnut Rescues a Bandicoot, plus I'm writing sequels to all.

Background Information

I was born in England and moved to Australia at the age of twelve. I had always dreamed of writing children’s stories, but due to childhood illnesses I missed an important part of my early schooling, and for some reason I slipped through the cracks. I didn't do very well at school and spent many hours outside the principal's office for disrupting the class. I left school at the age of fourteen to help look after my mother, who was ill for a while. As soon as I turned fifteen, I started working for a typewriter manufacturer in the city. My boss was a very kind and understanding man and he sent a typewriter to my home so that I could learn to type.  I began writing about my childhood, but I had no idea where commas went, or even how to spell, so my stories were filed away.

I married quite young, had a family, and worked full time, but when I turned fifty one, I helped my husband to build a brick house in the country. Once we'd finished, my husband bought me my first home computer, and as I no longer had to work full time, I enrolled in an online IT course at TAFE. It took me over a year and I surprised myself with high marks. I then joined online writing and critique groups and learned as much as I could about writing for children. I spent every spare hour writing, reading and critiquing. I read and studied hundreds of children’s books and kept editing my stories until I felt confident to submit them.  

My first story was my childhood memories turned into a fictitious children's adventure, which I called Star-Crossed Rascals.

I’m also a member of a wildlife rescue in Australia, and sometimes I add what I've learned about animals to my work, though I do write fantasy stories too.

So far, I have two children's books published: Velvet Ball and The broken Fairy which is a fantasy adventure story, and Star-Crossed Rascals, which is now a chapter book.  I also drew my own illustrations of the two rascals, Pollyweena Grubble and Gertie McDougal for Star-Crossed Rascals. 

At present, I'm writing the sequels to both books, plus editing other stories. 

I now have two beautiful grandchildren and they are such a wonderful inspiration.




Additional Information

I have three books published. Velvet Ball and The Broken Fairy is available as an eBook on Amazon Kindle and also as a paperback on Amazon Books. Star-Crossed Rascals is available on Amazon, and also Molly Gumnut Rescues a Bandicoot is available on Amazon.
