Arnott's Chocolate Coated Teddy Bear Biscuit

I write historical romance and speculate about writing speculative fiction.

When not writing I do stay-at-home-mum stuff and paint the picket fence. My vices include perfectly brewed tea, dark chocolate, fascinating web articles about personal productivity, and the occasional Arnott’s Chocolate Coated Teddy Bear Biscuit. I live in Melbourne, Australia with my smarty-pants 5yo daughter and my lovely, supportive, emotionally intelligent partner.
