I have always been captivated by stories that take us on haunting and extraordinary journeys deep into far-flung lands or hidden worlds, and that make new sense of the already-familiar or present magical new possibilities. Pair this with an imagination that is quick to turn a towering rock formation into a castle or people a forest path with a dreamed-up knight, and fiction writing was probably an inevitable occupation!
Growing up in rural New Zealand surrounded by beautiful nature provided an abundance of inspiration, which I have been using to create stories and characters from a young age. My blog focuses on inspiration and creativity - check it out.
When I'm not writing, I love to spend time painting in watercolour, reading, horse riding, making or listening to music, gardening, and doing creative projects.
I live, with my family and cat, on a sixteen-acre rural property on the east coast of New Zealand's North Island.
