She is a self-taught, self-publishing author, who is passionate about helping others achieve success and has recently published Self-Publishing: How to Publish Like a Pro for a Fraction of the Cost, a ‘how to’ guide which takes you through step-by-step instructions for publishing your book.

When not doing either of those things she likes spending time with her husband and two little dogs, fishing and camping, motorbike riding, stand-up paddle boarding, traveling and drinking wine on her deck.

Her debut novel, The Seven Steps to Closure, took gold in the humour category of the 2012 elit Publishing Awards and her second book, Cocoa and Chanel, won the 2014 Next Generation Indie Book Awards – Ebook Fiction Category, and the 2014 National Indie Excellence Awards – Humor Category.
