“This is a special picture book that sends a message of persistence and resilience, and the importance of trying again and again if we do not first succeed.”

The Children’s Book Council of Australia

Welcome to my website!

Here you can read about my books and why I love writing and reading. To me, every new story is like entering a miniature world where you can explore as far as your imagination takes you. See the Activities section for ideas on creating your own stories and miniature worlds.

I’m inspired by the brave children and families that I cared for working as a family doctor in Australia for almost twenty years. When I’m not writing stories, I work in medical education and enjoy helping organisations that help others.

I live in Queensland, Australia, with my family, one cat, two guinea pigs and many visiting birds and possums.
