My Books

It was in 1997 that I started putting pen to paper for the book “My Butterfly”.   The idea came to me when I was out training for an ultra-marathon. I was running 30km through the back of the hills in Brisbane. I find that during my runs I am so at peace, I solve all my problems and my imagination runs wild. I have spent many of my spare hours in my writing room bringing my imagination to life. It wasn’t until a few years later that one of my daughters found the first 3 chapters of the book, and she asked me to finish it.

In 2008 I wrote “Two Buttons”. The same things happened while out training for hours on end my imagination would overflow and I would again come back and put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard).

It was my goal to have both of these books published before I start “My Great Outback Adventure” in August 2015 which I am so happy to have done. I would like to Thank Jennifer & Ally, from Indiemosh Publishers, with all you help you have made my goal come true. Both of these books are now available on
