AUTHOR & STORYTELLER
Who Am I?
I'm a middle aged social media geek, marketing manager and author
I love my iPhone (for now), listening to podcasts and discovering new ways to save time and money online.
I still love Twitter, use Facebook cautiously, procrastinate on Pinterest and sporadically post happy snaps on Instagram.
I have a house to run, a dog to walk and most days I feel like I’m swimming upstream – perhaps you can relate?
Now that my kids are teenagers, I'm making myself more of a priority. I'm stepping outside my comfort zone, setting myself new challenges and practicing self-care on a daily basis.
- I am terrible at remembering names.
- I’m a recovering cyberchondriac
- I buy food magazines for the articles.
- I hate green peas so much don’t think I could eat one for a million dollars (all offers accepted though).
- I’ve never watched Game Of Thrones or The Walking Dead and have no plans to as I am a wimp about blood, gore and violence.
If you can forgive the above, here’s a few more things about me.
It was love at first “site”
In 1999 I had my first child and created my first website. Looking back it was a cringe-worthy mess of scrolling text, flashing images and corny background music, but at the time I couldn’t have been prouder.
Thankfully those Geocities days are long gone, and since then I’ve had many more websites and blogs. These days I combine my love of blogging with my passion for storytelling.
I am a storyteller
I’m a lifelong daydreamer who writes mysteries, young adult and children’s fiction.
One day I’d like to live on the beach and write books all day, every day.
I love to travel
As a kid my family had one vacation a year.
It was the annual Christmas road trip to my grandparents house that took 12 hours in extreme heat with not much to look at along the way.
I don’t know if this experience inspired me to travel, but I’ve been fortunate to see a lot of world as an adult.
I’ve travelled extensively through the U.S, Canada, the U.K, Ireland and Europe and always want to see more. I have lots of favourite places, including Disneyland!
I live in the nation’s capital
I was born in Sydney, but have lived in Canberra for most of my life.
I love my under appreciated city.
I love the community, the festivals and the four seasons (yes, even winter!).
I was a PR chick (sweetie, darling)
I think that term’s a bit outdated now, but many years ago I studied communication at the University of Canberra for a B.A. in Communication.
I worked in public relations for 20 years, although it was nothing like Ab Fab unfortunately.
About five years ago I decided to apply my knowledge of blogging and online marketing and specialise in social media strategy.
I currently work as a digital marketing manager.
