About me

Occupation Full time mom / part time teacher
Location Auckland, New Zealand
Introduction I have always had a vivid imagination. Making up stories in my head was one of my favourite past times as a child. This hobby has never left me and so I decided to do something about it. I wrote my first novel when I was 23 and haven't been able to stop. I've just published my first indie novel - total buzz. My ultimate dream would be to write a book so compelling that Hollywood would come knocking on my door. Then, of course, I'd be totally involved in seeing the movie come to life as well :) I think sharing our journeys is really important. That's why I love blogging. I'm having so much fun doing this and learning about the craft is a total buzz.
Interests Writing, reading, hiking, movies, music
Favorite Movies I am a HUGE movie buff so this list could be ridiculously long, I'll just name a few... Robin Hood Prince of Thieves, The Count of Monte Cristo, The Notebook, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, Titanic, Pearl Harbor, I also love most romantic comedies, anything epic, actions with great special effects, Basically any movie with a good love story and lots of action has me completely sold.
Favorite Music Also a huge music fan. I'll try and keep this list short too :) Casting Crowns, Mark Schultz, Simple Plan, Green Day, Good Charlotte, Barlow Girl, Movie soundtracks.
Favorite Books Anything written by Francine Rivers, The Dee Henderson Series, Twilight Series, This Present Darkness and Piercing the Darkness.
