Welcome to my website. I live in Albury, NSW Australia and was a primary school teacher and teacher-librarian before becoming a children's author. I have eight picture books published... so far!

My first five books are an amusing series about a flying purple pig called Pete. In each book Pete meets a new friend and together they fly around the world.

Book number six is called ‘The Day The Chooks Blew Away!’ and is based on a true story! Only the names have been changed to protect the chooks!

‘Daisy-May and the Aliens’ is my seventh published book. In this book unfriendly aliens kidnap farmer Brown’s cows and try to turn them into moocow milkshakes!

My new book is titled ‘Beware the Agapanthus.’ This book is based on a sign I once saw. It said,'Beware the Agapanthus' and tells a scary story about what a child might think an agapanthus could be. Susan Berran has cleverly created the illustrations.
