I'm addicted to writing. I've cut my writing teeth on my other lives as a mother and school teacher - plenty of writing fodder there! And on my other other life as an educational writer - mostly Science and Biology. I write adult and children's fiction. I've written a couple of novels, some children's stories and lots of short stories for adults.
Writing is my therapy! It makes me calm and happy; it forms me into a better person.

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I have another life as mother and school teacher. Of course, I'm really just a writer in disguise then, because while I'm going through the motions of living out that other life, I'm secretly collecting characters and incubating stories from the antics of the world and the people in it!
When the invincibility of youth collides with the unexpected during a sunny wake-boarding Saturday morning, a family is catapulted into the grief of a bedside vigil, willing their son and brother back to the living.
