Author / Illustrator; mum of three, wife of one; love fishing, cooking, sleeping, praying, painting, gardening, chooks, reading & watching wallabies and birds in my garden.
What makes you happy?
When my kids smile & laugh (& no, they are not little any more)
Where is your favourite place to write?
In my hammock (summer!) or in bed, because the most important part of writing is thinking about it.
If you could change one thing in the world, what would it be?
Replace human selfishness with pure compassion.
What’s the best thing about being a published author?
Knowing that the words inside my head (that never hit the paper making anywhere near as much sense as they did in brain space) make sense after lots of hard work that other people can actually connect to and enjoy. (Especially kids.)
Who or what inspires you?
My family, pets and environment
What is your worst habit?
Your favourite word(s) ?
Faith: because it fills in the missing bits.
