Hello! I’m an emerging writer/illustrator, book lover, arty gal, aspiring photographer and traveller, who loves the magic of words and pictures to tell a story which transports you to another place or conjures up some new imaginary friends. I’m also a fitness trainer who believes in the importance of daily training, whether it is physical or mental. Hence, you may find me running along a beach, my head in a book or a brush in my hand on any day you choose.
As an ex-librarian, whose career spanned over thirty years and ranged from a public library branch librarian to a corporate information manager for a global company, I know the power of words and the importance of literacy in the lives of young and old. I’ve also been lucky enough to be a virtual assistant to a prominent Australian children’s author - so I know lots of secrets about writing and publishing in the children’s book industry.
I adore children’s books, particularly picture books, but I also adventure into juvenile and young adult fiction. You can also find me avidly looking at arty and travel non-fiction books or engrossed in a biography or two. In fact, I will probably read anything you put in front of me … except a maths times table perhaps!
I do hope you enjoy reading my reviews as much as I will enjoy reading the books.
