English teacher by day, author by night, I am a new Australian author who has just released her first novel, The Shadow Miner.
I grew up in a small rural community in outback Queensland, Australia and my novels have been inspired by the spectacular landscapes and environment. I still live in my hometown and love spending time with my family and friends. With my spare time, I love being involved in amateur theatre and have directed and performed in a number of local productions.
I love the English language and the beauty and diversity of the way that it can be used. Some of the authors who have inspired me are Rafael Sabatini, Terry Pratchett and Georgette Heyer. I read a variety of genres and am working on two more novels at the moment.
