About the Author

Belle Gibbons was born and raised in a small town in North Queensland, Australia. Apart from her family there have always been three main interests in her life: writing, art, and healing. All three began when Belle was very small and she went on to become qualified in all of them. Her love of writing was the catalyst for her career in journalism, her passion for art led her to qualify in stained glass art, and her compassion for all creatures and desire to heal those in need motivated her to become qualified as a medical herbalist and professional counsellor.

Throughout her busy life Belle has travelled to many places and met many interesting people and draws on her life experience and professional observations and knowledge to write fiction books, short stories and articles. Belle lives with her husband, Peter, and little dog Oscar on their acreage, Wildwood, just outside a small country town in southern Queensland, Australia.
