Darwin In Australia, where I grew up. My heart will always think of Darwin as home. And Cairns Australia where I have now lived for 20 years.

Do you have plans for a new book? My next book which is part 2 in the Paradox Series – Progeny Of Innocence, will be finished for a November 2011 release as an ebook. I’m really excited about this 2nd book. It’s deep, dark and very evil.

What inspired you to write your first book? A broken heart. I really wanted to pick myself up and do something positive for me – writing was my own personal therapy for the last 2 years. Heart all fixed now!

How did you come up with the title and cover design? I like the word Paradox and the meaning. It makes you think, see things from other perspectives. And the cover I ended up using for book 1 is kind of dark and mystic, gothic I thought. I liked it, it suited the story. It is by the talented artist Hazel Brown from Overland Park, United States.

Have you based any of your characters on someone you know, or real events in your own life? Yes… And there are lots of bits of trivia throughout the book that mostly only I know about. Like the little friend of Grace’s Patrick Wheat, that dies in the book. I used the name Patrick to honour the life & death of Patrick Swayze. And the boys surname “Wheat” was the surname of the character the Patrick Swayze plays in the movie “Ghost”. That is just one example.

What books have most influenced your writing most and why? You know I would have to say, and don’t shoot me, that movies have influenced me more. I see a great movie and it makes me want to read the book. Know more about the story and characters as only a book can do.

What book are you reading now? Lots, but just recently I read 19 minutes my Jodi Picoult and really enjoyed it. I am presently halfway through The Passage by Justin Cronin.show less
