I come from Aotearoa, Land of the Long White Cloud – otherwise known as New Zealand.
I have been solidly writing for a number of years, and have a huge collection of unpublished novels sitting under my belt. Some of them I will eventually release out the world for readers, others will stay in my Writer’s Trunk forever, gathering dust. However, currently I am a published author in short fiction.
I consider myself a thriller writer, through and through, however – I more recent years I have been working on a Young Adult Urban-Fantasy story, which I hope to publish in the near future, and who know what could spin off from that. I love writing about amazing women on journeys of discovery, and of men haven’t found what they are looking for – yet. I enjoy writing of thrills and kills, and cracking my way through character behaviours and psychology. There is just something interesting about people’s motivations behind their actions, and I explore this through writing.
You will find some common thematic approaches in my writing that run across the board in all my books. At some point, there will be surfing. There will also be some form of environmental awareness. There will also be some travel, and finally – design elements. Due to my design background, the locations and houses that I write about have descriptive edgy design that has dropped straight from my imagination to the page. These are subjects that I am deeply passionate about, and subjects that have shaped me to be the woman I am today.
I do a bit of Graphic Design work for writers around the world, and you can find me over at Dwell Design & Press should you require my services or if you want to connect with me there. Professionally, during the day – my Evil Day Job currently consists of Project Management, Contract Management, and living in a corporate world to help support my family. Eventually I will be able to retire from that reality, and live within my head full time and write. The rest of my time is spent being a mother to Abigail, a wife to Mike, and doing whatever else needs doing. C’est la vie.
