Author / Illustrator

I am an author and illustrator of children’s books, living in Perth, Australia. I was raised in the country along side my brother, dog, sheep, several orphaned kangaroos and one very cheeky echidna.  

My obsession with animals also extends underwater as I have braved lionfish in Egypt, piranha and pink dolphins in the Amazon, marine iguanas and hammerhead sharks in the Galapagos Islands and swum with whale sharks and manta rays at Ningaloo, Western Australia.

My books have been published in Australia, New Zealand, France and the U.S.

I am thrilled to have won and been shortlisted for many prestigious children’s book awards, the best being the ones voted for by kids! 

I am a member of SCBWI (Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators - Australia West), the ASA (Australian Society of Authors) and CBCA WA (Children's Book Council of Australia WA).
