I'm a mother, wife, long time journalist and community worker, I started my first novel series as a way to help teens discover who they are; reconnect with parents; engage with a more diverse range of texts; find their voices and ultimately interact better with teachers and peers.

I wanted to help Australian youths find their own path to joy, love and fulfilment earlier than the generations before
