I'm a published author and social worker and  I've just  completed my latest draft novel, 'Christopher Reuben and the Curious World beneath His Garden' on Wattpad. While writing this story, I drew directly from my years of experience as a social worker working with many great people, sadly who were chronically ill and dying, at two major public hospitals in Melbourne, Australia.

The story is about a 14-year-old boy who suffers from a mysterious illness called Radar. Not long after his mother dies from the same illness, he escapes into a bizarre world beneath his garden.

I'm very grateful for all the fantastic feedback from everyone along the way! And of course your comments are still very welcome. Also, are you an artist? If so, book cover contributions are very welcome (and I will, of course, acknowledge you - the artwork remains yours).

Highest ranking: eight in Wattpad's top 1,000 Fantasy.
