About  Me I am a Melbourne based author of fantasy, historical fiction and sci-fi novels. As a passionate booklover, I enjoy stories across most genres. I grew up on Lord of the Rings and Gone with the Wind. The rawness and romance of mythology has always struck a chord within me. George RR Martin’s A song of Fire and Ice shaped the kind of author I am today. I loved the outrageous plot twists, the gut wrenching, action filled narrative and the sheer imagination, all weaved together. Isobelle Carmody’s Obernewtyn Chronicles inspired me to write my first book. I put down the Sending, after its cliff hanger ending, and thought to myself: I have so many ideas of where she could go with this. I could write the next book…I could write a book. For me, reading is as essential as eating. It is food for the mind. It allows me to take my imagination out of the cage that everyday monotony builds around it. I have been writing since I was a child. In my first year of secondary school, I won a competition for a short story, and it was published in the local newspaper. My teacher cut it out and put it on the notice board in our classroom. Oddly enough, I was never bullied for it. My story began on a picturesque farm, in a valley, where a river meets the bay. I was lucky enough to grow up there. It was my Shire, within the chaos of Middle- earth. This setting inspired a longing to discover new worlds; in reality, in books and inside my imagination. I love all the wild places; forests, national reserves, hidden beaches, anything that shows little sign of humanity. Every place has a thousand stories, and a thousand fictions that can be spun around them. I have travelled Europe, the Pacific, North America and, of course, I have visited many of the Lord of the Rings filming sites in New Zealand. I am a mad scientist, or perhaps just an angry one. As a chemist, I have worked with death rays (irradiators for cancer research), mutants (GMO technology) and Breaking Bad style of glassware (synthesis of research cancer drugs). Imagine an array of round bottom flasks, long condensers flushed with glass water jackets, spiral-like tubing, vacuums, separating funnels, flasks, all brightly lit up with bubbling, reacting chemicals. I have worked with chemicals that are flammable, explosive, radioactive, toxic. With gases so corrosive, they could begin to dissolve a person from the inside with a single breath (using a huge amount of safety precautions). At times, my workwear has included gowns of lead, elbow length leather gloves, blast shields, face shields and my pristine white lab coat. Nothing in this industry is quite as insane as the cliché mad scientist in the cartoons I fell in love with as a child (I have never stood before an experiment laughing manically whilst harnessing the power of lightening for example. Disappointing, I know). It is never quite as eccentric and wild as the sci-fi worlds in my head. I’m an old soul. I love my garden, growing and nurturing beautiful things within it, especially when I can eat them. I sew most of the clothes I wear. I like cats a little too much, and have a half crazed, slightly unhinged ragdoll puss. He is my shadow and sits by my side (or on my keyboard) while I write.
