Do you have a blog, magazine or other writing need? I am your woman!

I have been writing since I was literally 5 years old. And it really is my passion. I have been blogging since 2001, when I started my online journey. I have written a number of books, self published a children's picture book and my recent Healthy Planet, Healthy People Healthy Home book, developed content for websites, blogs, apps and brochures. I have had articles published in a range of online and print magazines and blogs including, Glam Adelaide, Huffington Post, Diabetic Living, Nest and Fleurieu Living Magazines. Hit me with your brief and let me do the rest.

I have met Helen Edwards from Recycled Interiors & The Sustainable Home Hub at trade shows and talked over the phone. Her blog post and lovely words have helped contribute to my Stump and Cracked Log Lamps trending on Pinterest! I owe Helen a big thanks. It is pretty crazy to see that her blog article about my work has been shared over 185,000 times. It feels a bit surreal and something I did not think would happen when I started out on this journey in the creative world.
