Welcome to my website.

I'm an author of books for kids, teenagers and adults. I love creating stories because I think it's the best way of exploring the world, living other lives, and finding out the truth about how I think and feel.  I love reading for the same reason. That's why I'm also a Love to Read Ambassador, a Victorian Premiers' Reading Ambassador, an International BookGiving Day ambassador and a Books in Homes Role Model. 

Happy reading

The second two of the Rainbow Street Animal Shelter series have just been released in paperback by Square Fish. I love these photographic covers: the animals are just perfect for the ones I've written! See more about them on the Rainbow Street page or click on their covers to go to the publisher or buy now.
