This may sound quite cliche, but the idea for my first novel, came to me in a dream. I dreamed I was locked in a tower with my two sisters while a crazy man with a painted face flew around the tower on a flying motorbike trying to kill us.
I was born in Christchurch, New Zealand. I have three older sisters, one older brother and one younger sister. I graduated from the University of Canterbury with a Bachelor of Arts in English and History.
My favourite thing to do is write. My ideas seem to come to me when I'm at work, or when I'm driving down the road, when I'm about to sleep, or even when I'm at church. When I'm not writing, I'm reading. I am also very passionate about animals and the environment. I volunteer at Willowbank Wildlife Reserve and I also volunteered at Orana Wildlife Park for two and a half years. I spent a month in Bolivia volunteering at a wildlife sanctuary. I also spent a week with the Department of Conservation on Codfish Island, helping out with their Kakapo Recovery Program.
