Well here it is...The Journey Begins

Updated: May 21

Welcome to my brand new author site! What a journey it's been already, and it's just the beginning. I've met some great authors in the #WritingCommunity, some of which will feature in my monthly newsletter and on my blog.



Let me start by telling you a little bit about why I made this website. I've loved writing, ever since I was a little girl. I would get so utterly lost in a book that I would stay up for hours and hours just wanting to keep reading (and not sleeping). My love of reading developed into my love for writing - I wanted to make stories that would truly inspire others and bring out their imagination that gets lost in young adults when they reach a certain age.


My first crime fiction novella, entitled Caught Undercover, revolves around a young boy named Matt Carson, who's parents Daniel and Amanda Carson are secret undercover agents. Agents have gone missing and Daniel and Amanda are among them, leaving it up to Matt to rescue his family. In order to do this, Matt must befriend Rueso Guestav, a boy similar his age who's father is the mastermind behind the criminal kidnappings. This isn't as easy as it sounds and when a shock twist happens, all plans hit the fan.


Caught Undercover has been widely accepted by Austin Macauley Publishers Ltd and is due to be in UK bookstores in 2021.
