I write science fiction, YA and works with strong female characters. That's also the kind of thing I like to read!

My inspirations: Ursula Le Guin (my hero), CS Lewis (his sci-fi), Gene Roddenberry, Edgar Allan Poe, Haruki Murakami, Robert Heinlein, JRR Tolkien, Charles Dickens, Margaret Atwood, Phillip Dick, Carl Jung, Joseph Campbell & Michael Talbot.

Currently working on Dark Star, a post-apocalyptic sci-fi with time travel, robots, aliens, a dangerous cult, and a touch of adolescent romance between Liran (18) and Imorah (16). It's the 5th and final book in The Dreaming series, which I've been working since I was teenager. I'm so happy to be finally sharing it with the world!

The community and support on Wattpad is amazing; I've made so many friends, and read so many great stories. Please see my reading lists -- they're always kept up to date with my favourites.

Besides writing my work-in-progress, I also run a group for women writers over 35 called @LOL-35, and I mentor many younger writers on the site, including.

If you've read this far, then you should know that I'm super approachable -- if you have any questions, please ask! I see other writers on the site as my peers -- we're all in this together, so reach out and say hello! I follow back dedicated readers and writing peers and try to read their works, but I don't have much time to read, I'll be honest, so thanks for understanding!
