Welcome to my neck of the woods.
I'm an Australian author who writes for children and young adults. I love life, laughing, lounging and lumpy chocolate. Also, fantasy movies that make you cry at the end because they're beautiful. No-one's been able to beat Lord of the Rings - yet! I think Peter Jackson is terrific. Love CS Lewis's Narnian books and movies, too.
Can't resist a great escape into another realm.
Love this excerpt:
" 'The term is over: the holidays have begun. The dream is ended: this is the morning.' And as He spoke, He no longer looked to them like a lion; but the things that began to happen after that were so great and beautiful that I cannot write them. And for us this is the end of all the stories, and we can most truly say that they all lived happily ever after. But for them it was only the beginning of the real story. All their life in this world and all their adventures in Narnia had only been the cover and the title page; now at last they were beginning Chapter One of the Great Story which no-one on earth has read; which goes on for ever; in which every chapter is better than the one before." The Last Battle.
I Love Writing;
couldn’t exist without pouring my heart and imagination onto the screen of my computer each day. Once I’ve started a new story, I have to find out what happens next, especially to my protagonist, so I have to keep writing the adventure until I’ve come to the end. I’m hoping people will find every chapter better than the one before.
I adore sunny days, eating out somewhere far from the maddening crowds. I’m very fond of picnics in parks, daydreaming, forests, rivers, clouds and jet streams. They somehow lift my soul past the eaves of heaven.
