I wanted to be a writer from the time I was seven-years-old.
I've worked as a journalist and an advertising copywriter, and now I'm an author.
I like to draw, travel and play golf, and the only things I love more than writing are my family, friends and my pets.
Like many authors, the road to publication wasn't easy for me, so I work hard to support and encourage new and young writers.
I provide regular writing tips and answer specific writing questions at my blog http://deescribewriting.wordpress.com
I also run writing competitions at http://writingclassesforkids.com and take workshops for enthusiastic writers of all ages in schools across Australia.
If you have a writing question for me or a writing topic you'd love to know more about, or you'd like me to visit your school, you can contact me at Dee*at*deescribe*dot*com*dot*au
