Biography

I live in beautiful Queensland in Australia. I started writing in 2009 because I wanted to do something creative and haven't stopped since! I have two series of books:

The Heller series (first book Heller - free!) features the frequently outlandish adventures of security officer, Tilly Chalmers, and her complicated relationship with her beautiful, mysterious and intense boss, Heller. There will be seven books in total in this series.

The Little Town series (first book Blood Ties - free!) features police officer, Tess Fuller, and her struggle to survive a long-standing vendetta with the feral Bycraft family and at the same time manage the tense relationship between her new partner, Finn Maguire, and her boyfriend, Jake Bycraft. There will be five books in total in this series.

My author dream is to one day write a short story (which for me will probably be about 50,000 words!) where Tilly & Heller meet Tess & Finn. What a story that would be! Maybe over the end-of-year break???

I hope you enjoy reading my books as much as I enjoyed writing them! I'd love to hear your feedback, so why not email me at: jdn.author@gmail.com

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Queensland, Australia, the middle child in a largish, low-income family. I've always been an avid reader, particularly of crime/mystery books (even as a kid). On special occasions, I asked for books as gifts, otherwise the library was a real treasure for me. I think I was conscious of that when I set the first books in my series free and have a lowish price on the rest of my books.
When did you first start writing?
July 2009. I decided I wanted to do something more engaging than just working, working, working. I enrolled in a course, but at the same time started writing my first book, "Heller". I only ever did one subject in that course, dropping it after the first semester to continue writing more Heller books! I just couldn't stop writing those books!
