I'm a proud member of the Romance Writers of Australia, Romance Writers of America, the Australian Society of Authors, The Romance Writers of New Zealand, and The KSP Writers' Centre.
I always loved to read, but trained as a book-keeper and spent my entire working life in the finance section of the mining industry.
In June 2009 something very odd happened. I woke up at 3am with a scene in my head. The inner thoughts and emotions of the main character in this scene were so crystal clear that I scrambled out of bed, raced to the computer and wrote them down. I haven't stopped writing since. Now my writing world has expanded to include proof-reading and mentoring new writers and I love every second of it.
I love creating stories. I crave writing, and to anyone else out there who feels the same I say, go for it. You never know what surprises life has in store.
