I’m a children’s author, educator and environmental scientist from Perth, Western Australia. I love children’s books! I love reading them, I love writing them, and I love to spread the cheer.

My debut book for middle readers The Lost Stone of SkyCity was shortlisted for an Aurealis Award, and my latest novel, YA Evacuation Road is out now.

My author bio is below, but if you want to know even more then head on over to the awesome ‘About’ bit, or feel free to contact me because I love to hear from you!
