about me 2.png

A very long time ago, I was a kid who loved to read. And write! My sis and I spent our school holidays and weekends and spare time writing stories and sharing them with each other (which could explain why I don’t know how to ride a bike!).

 

Then I got bigger (in age, not so much in height) and scored my first writing job in magazines. Over the years, I wrote articles and edited for DOLLY, Smash Hits, Girlfriend, Women’s Fitness, Cosmo and even wrote some travel content for Jetstar, Kia Ora and Escape. 

 

But my one true love is books. Hopelessly devoted. And in 2020, THE DREAM came to fruition when I won the HarperCollins Matilda Prize – and now my debut novel, Half My Luck, is in the world. 

 

P.S. This isn’t what I normally look like when I’m typing away, but a girl can dream…
