Many years later, with my mother’s influence, I discovered a passion for words and history, read my first historical romance and was inspired to write my own. I write most mornings and care for the elderly in the afternoons. My love of travel has given me the gift of many amazing sights but none more heart-stirring than the rugged beauty of Scotland. I’m a proud member of Romance Writers of Australia, New Zealand and America.

I now live in a small town in New South Wales, Australia, with my very own Scottish hero and a Jack Russell named Wallace. Our two beautiful daughters have left the nest and begun their own adventures. I love travelling, taking photos, dancing like no-one’s watching and seeing the sights from the back of my husband’s motorcycle.
