I started writing junior fiction stories when I was on maternity leave with my first daughter (who was luckily a good sleeper). My first book Night of the Perigee Moon won the 2013 Tom Fitzgibbon Storylines Award and was published in 2014 by Scholastic. My new chapter-book series about Frankie Potts, red-haired girl detective was launched by Puffin in June 2016.
I'm pleased as punch to be carrying on a family tradition by becoming a published author: I'm the third generation to do so. I live in one of Wellington's hilly suburbs in a red house by a railway line, with my husband and two young daughters. I juggle writing with family life and work, which involves doing inscrutable digital stuff with websites.
