About Me

Hello and welcome!

Here’s a little info on me.  I grew up in Australia and moved to England in 2003 to pursue a career in finance.  After I got married and started a family, I wanted to do something different while I raised my young children.  I completed a degree in English Literature at the University of London and absolutely loved it.  My studies spanned five hundred years of literature from Shakespeare to the great poets of the Georgian period, to Charles Dickens of the nineteenth century and Virginia Woolf and Angela Carter of the twentieth century.  

I was so fascinated with how literature intertwined with British history that I thought it would be wonderful to write about my experiences and what I had learned.  One day as I was strolling through Bishop’s Park with my children I had a ‘lightbulb moment’ and thought it would be marvellous to turn my idea into a story.  So I did!

My first novel ‘Between the Trees’ was released in 2021 and will be a seven-book series. The second and third books, ‘The Amulet’s Curse’ and ‘The Chest of Spells’ are also available. I’m currently working on the fourth instalment.

I’m so excited to share my books with you. They are full of adventure, fantasy and fun! My goal is to get kids reading and love learning about British history.  At this page you’ll find a brief description about Between the Trees as well as the first chapter.  I really hope you enjoy it and I would love to hear your feedback.  Just click on the ‘Contact’ link above.
