I was born in England and migrated with my family to Adelaide, South Australia in 1963.

I have been writing since school days and received a Highly Commended Prize for a Short Story in my final year of High School.
Since then I have had many Short Stories and Poems published in a variety of literary magazines on and off line. I have won a few competitions along the way, including Poems for Passengers. This was a joint initiative between TransAdelaide and the Department for the Arts and Cultural Development in 1994.

In 2011 I self published a book through Peacock Publications about my 27 years working as a Psychiatric Nurse at Hillcrest Hospital.

A children’s fiction book titled, ‘THE GIRL FROM FAR AWAY’ was published through Gnome On Pig Productions on 5
th May 2016.

A novel of women's fiction titled 'THE MADDEST KIND OF LOVE' was published in August 2016 through Driven Press.

When I am not writing you will usually find me travelling overseas with my husband, cooking while listening to music, reading, or shimmie & shaking at Belly Dancing classes.
