About The Author

I'm an Australian author and my debut novel, Deadly Secrets is available in both paperback and eBook format and will be available in hardback soon. It's currently long-listed for the 2021 Davitt Awards (Sisters In Crime Australia). Deadly Secrets is an Australian mystery thriller.


Several of my short stories have appeared in the Scarlet Leaf Review Magazine (Canada), the UK anthology ‘When Stars Will Shine’, the Australian anthology ‘Fledglings’, and the UK Writers’ and Readers’ Magazine.


I live in Adelaide, South Australia. Besides writing, traveling, and discovering new places, is my passion. I've visited many fabulous countries and cities around the world. I keep a daily travel journal and take copious photos and these inspire scenes for my stories e.g. Deadly Secrets begins in Paris and has scenes set in Normandy, Nice, and Barcelona before returning to Australia. I'm an avid theatre-goer and enjoy art exhibitions and galleries. Of course, I love to read and some of my favorites writers are Elliot Perlman, Anna Funder, John le Carré, Scott Turow, and Peter Temple.
