Poppy spent the first eighteen years of her life in Tasmania. Her family lived on a small farm outside of Launceston. She moved to Brisbane to attend the University of Queensland where she received a BA in English. In Brisbane, she was working behind the bar in the beer garden at the Royal Exchange Hotel when she met her future husband, a carpenter called William.
Poppy has worked as a guesthouse manager in Edinburgh, Scotland; been a nanny, ski guide and hotel cleaner in Zermatt, Switzerland; a bartender in Lagos, Portugal; and was employed on a luxury yacht on the French Riviera until she was too seasick to continue. She has also worked as a journalist and editor in Sydney and Brisbane. She now lives in Brisbane in an 1875 Queenslander cottage with her husband, three children and three cats.
Poppy is currently focusing on raising her children and writing. In her spare time, she likes taking her kids to the beach, hiking alone in the forest, snow-skiing, exploring historical places, gardening and reading.
Vanishing Falls is set in a fictional rainforest area, near the Liffey Falls, an enchanting three-tiered waterfall beneath the Great Western Tiers in northern Tasmania, where Poppy’s parents liked to take their four children for bushwalking picnics on weekends.
