As you can probably see, I spend a lot of time writing. I write fiction and non-fiction for kids, fiction for teenagers, classroom stuff for teachers, and the occasional music review as well.

I currently have more than 80 titles in print, in Australia, New Zealand, the UK, the USA, the Netherlands and Norway. Some of them have even been part of award-winning series. Most of them are available in print and digital format.

My writing career started at the age of 18, when I wrote a story about a high-school computer hacker. No one wanted to publish it. Then I wrote a poem about a piano-playing monkey. No one wanted to publish that either.

Worried that no one would ever publish any of my own books, I became an editor so that I could interfere with the books of others. Then, in 2008, a lovely publisher asked me to write a book about the Beaconsfield mine disaster. That was the beginning of a new direction - writing for the classroom. And now, with the publication of the Max Booth Future Sleuth series, I'm excited to be writing for an even wider audience. I hope you enjoy.
