I am an Australian, a fiction writer and an artist. Originally from Maitland, near Newcastle, I have lived in the Central West of New South Wales for nearly thirty years. Country and coastal locations, travel and my life experiences have given me a great deal of inspiration for my creative pursuits.My novel called The Jasper Plate, published by Xlibris, is now available for purchase in soft-cover and hard-cover books and as an ebook. Visit Amazon to order, or the Xlibris online bookstore in the Fiction section under Romance - General. Links to these sites can also be found on my website.
