EMPOWERING CHILDREN THROUGH STORY
I have always been involved in teaching children in some form. My teaching career began in Newcastle, was put on hold while raising a family. I taught dance as a hobby for 15 years and re-established myself as a teacher for Education Queensland. I have combined my passion for art, writing and working with children in my new venture as a children’s book author, illustrator and publisher. My first book, Wot-si-u and the Whispering Wattles, was published in 2014 and the artwork is on display at the Cobb& Co Museum, Toowoomba. My second book is due to be launched this year. Several of my poems have been published in magazines and anthologies through the Fellowship of Australian Writers Queensland.
I love sharing my creativity with others and especially enjoy encouraging children to create using their wonderful imaginations.
