I consider myself lucky to be living an idyllic rural lifestyle being a farmer's wife and mother of two near perfect children. My handsome husband quite often asks me to help him feed sheep, move sheep or draft sheep.
Although busy with all of the above I also work part-time and
in my spare time, I write novels.
I've always felt a calling, a yearning for something
While out on the town for my girlfriends hens party at Melbourne's Crown Casino the idea for my first novel, Intoxicated came to life. The story, the characters, the scenes in which they live came alive inside my mind so clearly it surprised me. I've never felt so certain about anything (regarding my choice in career) before.
Writing has become a compulsion for me. It's not a job, it's not work. It's something I enjoy doing and it's now a big part of my life.
My love for writing is very recent. I've only been bashing the keys since September 2014, yet somehow I've managed to complete three novels and start a fourth and fifth.
My characters run a constant muck in my head and I find the only way to control them is to bring them to life on my computer screen.
Those who know me were just as surprised as I was when I told them, I'm going to be a writer.'
You see I was never one to pick up a book and now I find it hard to put them down.
I truly believe, "everyone is naturally good at something."
As I said, the idea for my first novel, Intoxicated came to me while I was attending an all-male revue for my friend’s hens’ party (strange, but true).
You never know when inspiration will strike, but make sure you grab it with both hands when it does.
I promise, no male burlesque dancer was hurt during my moment of perspicuity.
