I write fiction - specifically, category romance and single title women’s fiction. My writing has won and placed in various contests - including Wisconsin Romance Writers Fabulous Five Silver Quill, Magnolia State Dixie First Chapter, Romance Writers of Australia's Emerald Award and the Valerie Parv Award. I’m British-born, Aussie bred, living west of Sydney, where it gets too hot in summer and never cold enough in winter. In my former, paid (non-writing) life, I was an assistant/secretary/PA, office manager, software trainer and aerobics instructor. I've also done heaps of work with Romance Writers of Australia and am currently one of their contest judges and editor for Hearts Talk, their monthly mag. I've been writing ever since the age of eleven after I got hooked on the glorious historical romances of Johanna Lindsey, Kathleen Woodiwiss and Shirlee Busbee. At sixteen, I tried a collaboration with my then-best friend (our first attempt!) but it fizzled when we both started jobs and then she moved to another city. My other early influences were historical writers Jennifer Wilde, Sergeanne Golon, Jude Deveraux and Judith McNaught. My contemporary faves include (but are not limited to) Susan Elizabeth Phillips, Ruth Wind, Bronwyn Jameson, Fiona McArthur, Jill Mansell, Laurell K Hamilton, Lori Foster, Jennifer Crusie, Nora Roberts, Linda Castillo, Eileen Wilks, Nancy Warren, Tess Gerritsen, Kristen Hannah... whew! The list goes on and on and..... :O) Joining Romance Writers of Australia in 1994 was the best thing I ever did for my writing career, as was entering contests (86 to date, I believe). It all paid off when I got The Email on my fourth full manuscript on 7th September 2006 1.19am... Want to know more? Okay, here's a snapshot of the total sum of me:
