Who I AM

A woman who writes, and is always happiest by the water with her toes in the sand and a pen or book in hand.  A mum of 3.  A wife.  A lover of animals, especially dogs.  A dreamer and creative spirit.


I write about parenting, life after 40, travel, dogs, and more.  I love to share my book obsession with fellow book lovers, and support other women who have writing dreams so they can stop dreaming and start writing.  I also edit and write for Loving Life After Forty online magazine so you can see a lot of my work over there.  I'm currently working on my first novel.


Other than my husband, kids, books, and chocolate (and not necessarily in that order...chocolate is seriously good!) my big passion in life is:


Yes, I'm a word nerd and have a serious addiction to books and writing.  My recipe for pure bliss = 1 x hammock, 1 x sandy beach & turquoise sea, plus 1 x book (and dog) to curl up with...it may also include Hugh Jackman, but sshhh, don't tell my husband! I love journaling, reading, scribbling down stories, making endless lists, did I mention reading, and of course, writing articles and books.  But even more than that...I LOVE helping other women make their book writing dreams a reality by working 1-1 with them to complete their first draft, and suppporting those who are already writing to bring their writing to life through the power of EDITING.

Will this be the year that you stop dreaming and start writing?
