I was born in Manchester, England, but after moving backwards and forwards across the world 13 times in 14 years I decided that at the age of 18 that Australia was to be my home. I now live on the beautiful Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia where every day is a good one. I am the lucky mother of two grown up children, and, along with my ever-patient husband, I am the proud but sometimes flustered owner of four dogs, a cat, and a canary. I have always had a love of reading, and even though my background is in accounting, I have now discovered my love of writing. My main wish is to write books you can sit back, relax with, and escape from your everyday life...and ones that you walk away from with a smile! When I'm not writing you will usually find me at the beach with a coffee in hand, pursuing her favorite pastime—people watching!
