About this author

I have been passionate about reading and writing since early childhood. Prize-winning stories in primary school led to hours writing fanfic (long before the phrase was invented) as a teenager, and I wrote my first novel in my twenties. Life got in the way of my dream of becoming a best-selling author, but writing and reading have remained life-long pleasure pastimes.

"New Beginnings" made its online debut in March 2010, and is now available in paperback from Lulu and Amazon. The sequel, "New Beginnings: Moving On" was launched in December 2011, and the final title in the trilogy, "New Beginnings: Starting Over" was published in April 2013.
Visit my Amazon page for more information.

If you've read either of my books, I'd love to know what you t
