Welcome to my website.
I'm an author of books for kids, teenagers and adults. I love creating stories because I think it's the best way of exploring the world, living other lives, and finding out the truth about how I think and feel. I love reading for the same reason. That's why I'm also a Love to Read Ambassador, a Victorian Premiers' Reading Ambassador, and a Books in Homes Role Model.
