About Me

I am an Australian author of historical fantasy and alternative history.

I have a particular interest in writing about women in historical settings who defy the expectations of their society and their time period. My books are for readers who enjoy stories with a basis in history or mythology mixed with fantastical elements.

My other interests include canine nutrition, jellyfish, and trying to get fit before the zombies come.

5 Things You Didn’t Know About Me

1 I studied Ancient Greek at university because I wanted to read Homer in his own language.

2 I’m fascinated by miniatures and tiny things.

3 I studied to be a journalist because I thought that would provide a more reliable income than writing. I hated it because I wasn’t telling my own stories, only repeating what somebody else had already said.

4 If I wasn’t a writer, I would have been a marine biologist except that I get very, very sea sick. I’m also claustrophobic under water so that was never going to work out.

5 I never ever look into a mirror in a dark room.
