There has rarely been a time in my life when I haven't read or written. Passions are strong and reading and writing are mine. I began writing my first book at ten-years-old. I never finished it.
Short stories, poems and songs I completed with ease but I never achieved the elusive novel.
I had some fantastic English teachers who continually encouraged me to explore the talent they believed I had. I began many novels, again never completing them. Life got too busy or perhaps that was just an excuse!
Eight years ago, I picked up my laptop and began writing. Since then I haven’t stopped. I not only completed my first novel ‘Forgotten’ but also four more in the ‘Araneya Series’. Maybe the timing was right; maybe I needed more life experiences. I don't know but working on my books is now my life.
I am fortunate to live in an author’s haven; a quaint fishing village on the east coast of Queensland, Australia. The sounds and smells of the nearby ocean, and of the surrounding natural wildlife, I find soothing and inspiring.
I hope you enjoy my debut novel, ‘Forgotten’.
