I started writing when I was about twelve. I'd just read one of Elaine Mitchell's brumby books (not the silver brumby series, one of the others) and I hated the ending. So I did what seemed the most natural thing to do--I rewrote it.
I haven't stopped writing since--though I have to admit, it's only in the last ten years that I've seriously thought about getting published.
To date, I've completed a total of ten novels, (not counting the rewrite of Elaine Mitchell's!) though the first three will probably never see the light of day. I thought they were brilliant at the time, but looking at them now, I can only shudder. I still think the ideas are great, but basically, all three books would need to be entirely rewritten. Maybe I'll get back to them one day, when I have the time and nothing else to write. I'm a member of the Melbourne Romance Writers Guild, and co-edit its newsletter, Romancing the Word. I'm also a member of the Sock Monkeys online crit group.
I'm a dessert and function cook by trade, and married to a wonderful man (Pete) who not only supports my writing, but who also does the majority of the housework--he has to, because I don't, and the house looks like a cyclone hit it otherwise. We have one daughter, Kasey.
