I’m originally from the UK but currently living in Melbourne where I indulge in great coffee on a daily basis, care for my two young children, and write for the love of it!
A selection of my favourite books are…
Welcome to Rosie Hopkins’ Sweetshop of Dreams & The Little Beach Street Bakery by Jenny Colgan (among many others of hers)
The Tudor Series by Philippa Gregory
A Christmas Carol and Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens
Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen
Why Mummy Drinks by Gill Sims (makes me giggle)
Some stories I can’t wait to share with my children are…
The Magic Faraway Tree by Enid Blyton
The Secret Garden and A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett
The Roald Dahl collection
The Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis
‘Twas the Night Before Christmas by Clement Clarke Moore
Likes: Family time, travel, reading, eating, coffee, sleep, and a spotless and well-ordered home (who am I kidding?).
Dislikes: The usual offenders – crumbs (aka ‘The Enemies’), queues, and traffic.
If I didn’t write, I’d: Try my hand at interior design instead.
Usually to be found: If I’m not looking after the children, manically cleaning up after ‘the enemies’ or stuffing my face with chocolate biscuits; I’m in one of my favourite cafés with only my laptop, imagination, and a skinny latte for company…
