I am a city girl with a country heart. Growing up on a small family acreage outside Geelong, I spent my formative years riding horses and pretending the neighbour’s farm was my own. After spending three years in a regional city in New South Wales in my 20’s, my love of small country towns and rural life was further developed. Nowadays I dream of one day escaping to the country with my husband where we will live on land surrounded by horses, dogs, cows and sheep. Until then I live vicariously through the lives of the characters in my books.
A voracious reader, I have always wanted to be an author. After returning to university as a mature aged student in my late 30’s to study nursing, I juggled full time study, part time work and raising four small children, but the dream to write never left. In January 2014 I wrote my first book and now divide my time writing medical rural romance for Pan Macmillan with working as a Critical Care Nurse in either the Emergency Department or Intensive Care Unit. This is where many of my stories and characters are imagined.
My husband Tim and I reside in Geelong, Victoria. My life is insanely busy, always fun and definitely exhausting, but I wouldn’t change it for anything.
