I’m best described as a writer, a teacher, a coffee drinker, a dog wrangler, and an expert mess maker. I grew up in rural Australia and wrote my first book when I was ten. (It was a homemade joke book, full of some seriously cheesy jokes.) Since then I have barely stopped writing stories and, while my taste in jokes may not have improved in the slightest, I like to think that my storytelling skills have. I currently live in Melbourne, Australia, with my husband, our daughter and our much loved dog, Peggy.
