|I'm currently writing...||
I’ve recently published a chick lit novel about a girl who tries to find love by doing a love spell. It has romance, humour, some light sex scenes (unless you ask my mother) and coarse language.
An urban fantasy I wrote for Nanowrimo. Not sure who it’s aimed at yet as there is a couple of sex scenes and coarse language and one of the main protagonists is a seventeen year old girl.
Beginning stages of a chicklit horror / romance.
I have dabbled here & there

Marian Keyes, Cathy Kelly, Jane Green, Sophie Kinsella are my favourite authors but I also enjoy Stephen King, The Bronte sisters and Jane Austen. Am so inspired by the worlds JK Rowling and Suzanne Collins created.

|More About Me||
It’s taken me over seven years to complete my first novel. I know this because when I started it, I was pregnant with my second child who has just celebrated his seventh birthday. Although the first manuscript is done, I’m now working on getting it ready for publication.
I live in Melbourne, Australia with my husband and 3 sons, my dog and 5 chickens.
I’ve worked in admin and reception, and studied natural therapies and music business management before having children. I’ve been a stay at home mother now for ten years, with a few hit and miss attempts at home businesses and various study courses, only to quickly lose interest.
Then it hit me that once I started writing, it was the only thing that had been keeping my interest (besides my family of course) and I haven’t gotten bored yet!
My favourite methods of procrastination are reading, cooking, Facebook, Pinterest and reading home and living magazines. But not housework – unless the writing is going really badly and I’m desperate.
