My books have been published both locally and internationally by a range of publishers including Caterpillar, Silver Dolphin, Simon & Schuster, Scholastic US, Little Brown, SmartInk Books, Cottage Door Press, Little Bee, Langue Au Chat, Helium, Lake Press, Hardie Grant and ARS Editions.

I also illustrate and design for my Little Red Owl and AUSTRALIA greeting card ranges.

I live near the beach with my bike-loving husband and my two busy children but I have also lived and worked in New York and London. I need coffee in the mornings. I love blue nail polish, riding my bike, swimming, running and eating any food that I did not have to cook... and I have an Australian Koolie called Obi Wan who likes to run fast and bark loudly.
I am a member of the wonderful Illustrators Australia.
