Please use the prompts to go directly to information about my books or speaking. Or take a moment here to read a little about who I am

I was born in Lithgow, NSW in 1948, but early in my childhood my family moved to the Illawarra where I married my husband, Neil. When our two children, Tammy and Adam, began school, I returned to study, graduating from the University of Wollongong in 1986 with a PhD in Psychology.

For the next 10 years I worked with the Australian College of Ministries, teaching counselling skills and personal and spiritual formation, while also working with my local church, leading recovery groups, speaking and being involved in pastoral care.

In 1999 I began a private counselling practice, and recently I have also pursued my love of writing and am excited about the publication of my historical novels.

My heart is to see people develop their strengths and to grow emotionally, mentally and spiritually. I am convinced this can happen in a variety of ways and if I can offer any support or encouragement to others through my speaking or writing, then I believe I will have fulfilled my life's calling.

Please contact me about any of these areas. I would love to hear from you!
