Nothing held back. First confession…I am more of a circle than a square. I am looking forward to including new and previously published articles and interviews for writers, book reviews for readers, innovative and inspirational musings on life and my misadventures. My son has diagnosed me with Ditzaphrenia. He coined the term to describe someone who suffers from ditzy accidents daily and repels technology. Laughter assured.
I have been story telling since before I could write. I was lucky enough to have Bryce Courtenay as my first creative writing teacher when I was in primary school. I still follow his advice. I am an author of short fiction, stories for children, YA and NA fiction and equestrian, sport psychology, business non fiction and personal development works.
I started working as an editor twenty years ago and have edited a number of magazines. I currently work as a substantive/structural editor assessing and reviewing manuscripts.
I have a background as an equestrian and personal development coach, primary/literature teacher and in business, PR and marketing management. I combined this with my Sport Psychology education to mentor other coaches, taking them from where they are to where they want to be and propelling their goals into accomplishments. I currently focus in mentoring other writers to master their craft, stay motivated and become authors.
I am passionate about creativity. I am an animal rights and environmental advocate. I reside in the Northern Rivers of NSW with a large menagerie.
If you are open to celebrating creativity, the good, the hairpin turns and hysterical, let’s connect and share Quirks & All.
Create – Life – Love – Laughter
