• Thanks to a life of travel and linguistic exploration, my action-packed stories for middle grade readers are infused with adventure, exotic cultures, rich language, and mythological elements while my picture books feature quirky characters and lots of word play. 

    I come from a school counselling background, so I have a strong interest in bibliotherapy and titles with potential to be used pastorally. I grew up in the US, have lived in Italy and Taiwan, and I built my career and raised my family in Australia. 

    I’m the ARA of the state of Queensland, a hotbed of kidliterary talent
