Born in tropical North Queensland, Lena loves living close to the sea, although she moved frequently during her early years, living everywhere from Capital cities to isolated farms. Her most recent home has a deck overlooking the sea, which is her favourite room in the house, although, when the local birds come to visit, it is often hard to retreat to the computer and write!
After working as a primary school teacher in both her native Queensland, and later in New South Wales where she met her own romantic hero, she took a very early retirement to travel Australia with him, in a motorhome. This idyllic lifestyle lasted several years, during which she took the first steps towards fulfilling her lifelong ambition to write.
Storytelling came naturally - she had been making up stories for her own entertainment all her life, but it wasn’t until she began traveling that she had time to write down some of her favourites. Now a self-published author, Marrying Alan Morgan, is the first in a series of rural romances set in the fictional town of Oxley Crossing. She also writes standalone contemporary romances and Australian historical romances.
With an addiction to happily-ever-afters, in both her reading and her own stories, the romance genre was a natural fit, and the variety of places she has lived have all added to the settings in which she brings love to life.
