I began writing as a way of using my research skills when working from home as a new mother. As I wrote my first adventure novel, I realised that I absolutely loved writing, and have been publishing ever since. I have written non-fiction books for Pearson's Education Publishing (USA) and fiction through my imprint (SpearPoint Press). I published books in multiple genres before turning my hand at crime to win The Kindle Book Review Reader’s Choice Award in 2019 and the Scarlet Stiletto’s HQ Fiction ‘Best Thriller’ category in 2020. In 2022, my books have been nominated for the Queensland Literary Awards and the Sisters in Crime Davitt Awards.
