Meet the Author

Before anything else, I have a strong passion to write. On creative days I crank out paragraphs and pages, hoping desperately to send my words out into the world. Through my words I want to show teenagers that they can be themselves, that they don’t need to ‘fit in’, and most importantly it is okay for them to love themselves. It can be a very difficult world out there and I want to somehow make it easier for teens or at least show them they are not doing the uphill battle by themselves. There are plenty of others with similar feelings and emotions. They are not alone.


I know writing is a business – a business that requires timeliness. I enjoy putting in the time because I treat my times for writing as a gift to myself. The pleasure I evoke from writing is shown in my ability to have numerous articles published in local Melbourne newspapers and a centre-spread in the Fellowship of Australian Writers magazine, my capacity to complete a Certificate in Professional Writing and Editing, my accomplishment at gaining a mentorship with the Australian Society of Authors, and my achievement at finally finishing my first novel, Forty Scrubs.

    Some of the reviews were funny because...

    Like I was saying some of the reviews were funny because a 10 year old said it was not for kids under 13 and he or she was not even 11 and could not even spell beautiful right. I am not trying to be mean but tell you guys what struck me as funny. I gave it four stars because the reviews made me laugh and I think they made a horror movie like this book.

    Okay.....

    This book was okay the ending wasnt very good because i still wanted yo know who the father was. Over all it was a preety good book. Although i disagree with the people who think this book is for 13 and up. It dosent matter how old you are but your reading level and your mayurity also if your parents approve if you are 10 ot younger.

    P.S. sorry about spelling, its really hard to type bwith the simple touch nook.
