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 reading fascinating web articles about personal productivity (the more flow charts the better), and scoffing Arnott’s Chocolate Coated Teddy Bear Biscuits. I live in Melbourne, Australia with my smarty-pants 5yo daughter and with my lovely, supportive, emotionally intelligent partner.
