I am a teacher, mother, aspiring children’s author and picture book enthusiast!
Growing up, I was always reading, dressing up or performing to my family – much to their despair. At school I enjoyed all things creative and went on to complete a double degree at Monash University: a Bachelor of Arts and Education with a major in Criminology and a minor in Drama.
After 7 years of teaching Drama, Humanities and Legal Studies to secondary students, I had two gorgeous babies of my own and rediscovered my love of writing on maternity leave. I have completed Australian Writers’ Centre Writing Picture Books Course, Enterprising Words Picture Book Course and I am currently enrolled in Jen Storer’s ‘Scribbles’ Creative Writing Course. I’m passionate about children’s literature and my stories are designed to make children laugh, think and have self-belief.
