I’m a mother, author, editor and geek. I live in Canberra, Australia’s bush capital, with my son and two Cairn Terriers. I have a serious coffee addiction and a tattoo of a cat — despite being allergic to cats. I’ve loved to read since primary school, when the library was my refuge, and love many genres — although urban fantasy is my favourite. When I’m not reading or writing, I engage in geekery, from Doctor Who to AD&D. Because who said you need to grow up?
