I consider myself a reformed academic who discovered fiction writing was preferable to the real world. Born in Australia, where I still live, I have traveled extensively and enjoy bringing these experiences to my writing. My love of suspense fiction is thoroughly indulged through writing novels and short stories about Fractured Families and Killer Secrets. My novels have been nominated for the Ned Kelly Award and The Davitt award, both Australian awards for crime fiction. My short stories have been included in several anthologies including the Anthology of Award Winning Australian Writing.
