stories and poetry

Hello, a bit about me

I have two wonderful children with my husband Peter, our son Nathan and daughter Rebecca. A chocolate labrador who I adore and a worldly old cat that adopted me.
We live just west of Byron Bay, where I was born, and look over the valleys of the northern rivers.
I love to write, to sing, to cook, and to hold babies………but not all at once!
My favourite colour is orange.
My poems are often about growing up as a young girl in Byron Bay. The beaches and fishing with my dad, visiting family and friends, neighbours and everyday life.
And I love all animals, but my favourite are giraffes. I think apart from their stunning orange colouring, as a girl I always wanted to have beautiful long legs….
