I’m not entirely sure what secrets or hidden truths you thought you might find here, but the most important thing you’ll ever know about me is:
I love to read!
I’ve had a lifelong love affair with books that began the day my dad first read aloud to me as a child – doing all the voices of course! The first book we read together was Roald Dahl’s Matilda, and years later, it’s one of the books I’ve shared with my own children.
Over the years, I’ve learned to view literature as a veritable all-inclusive buffet of literary flavours and I’m always hungry to sample the next selection. I have happily whiled away plenty of rainy afternoons and late nights reading some truly wonderful books.

Well, the options are literally endless, but, in keeping with my passion for sharing books with children and teens, I’ve decided to try my hand at writing a fantasy series for middle-grade readers. This decision is one I question all the time, but somehow, I still wake up every day with the belief that an amazing story lives inside my mind, just waiting to be written.
And so I write…
