I am a writer of historical fiction with a particular love of Elizabethan England. My stories weave fictional characters into the gaps within the historical record – tales of ordinary people who are very much men and women of their time, yet in so many ways are like us today. These are people with the same hopes and longings as we have to find both love and their own place in a troubled world.

Although I grew up in regional Victoria, I have lived all my adult life in Melbourne where I work as a librarian. I have a Master of Arts in history and am also a family history obsessive.
