I've had a keen interest in reading, writing and creating since junior school when I wrote and illustrated my first book, Geoffery's Mouse. It wasn't the best-seller I'd hoped for, but we all have to start somewhere!

'A loving story of a boy and his mouse.'

I write picture books that are fun, quirky and surprising, although I also enjoy dipping my toes into junior fiction and experimenting with flash fiction.

I'm inspired by Oliver Jeffers, Aaron Blabey, Nick Bland, Chris McKimmie and the incredible team of Julia Donaldson and Alex Scheffler. 

Those who make the craft of creating a picture book look so deceptively simple! 

It would be remiss of me not to mention Maurice Sendak, Theodor Geisel (Dr Seuss), Lynley Dodd and Roald Dahl, just because they're incredibly awesome!

I live with my husband and three children on a rambling block on the edge of the Adelaide Hills and I write because it makes me ridiculously happy. 

I hope that one day I'll have a chance to share my writing, and that it makes others as happy as me.
