I am an Australian children's author. I grew up in country New South Wales in a neighbourhood stuffed full of happy children. My adult years have been spent teaching, raising boys, perfecting my recipe for chocolate-chip bickies and pursuing my love of stories. 

In my writing, I celebrate family, friendship and belonging. I also love creating stories that make children laugh. What can be better than contagious belly giggles, hen-like cackles or wild guffaws that end in a snort?

My home is now in country Victoria where I live with my family and an exuberant black whippet called Olive. I dream of one day owning a spotted pig called Harold.
