A deep love of story, and appreciation for the beauty of New Zealand, are the twin passions of my creativity. I spent my childhood rambling through the woods and fields of Northland, making up stories and loving the peace of those landscapes as my skill in painting them, grew. I loved reading adventure and fantasy books and now write my own.

For the last four years I’ve traveled New Zealand with my husband and three girls in our Housetruck, Leviathan. Our travels have taken us all over Middle Earth, and I’m inspired daily by the glorious landscapes of this country. I write and paint whenever I can, when not working, driving our housetruck or out exploring. I am working on a fantasy trilogy and plan to publish my first book, The Oath And The Blade, in 2020.
