Three books in the Fearless Friends series: Graffiti Fighters, Ghost Hunters and Justice Warriors are now available.
A picture book called The Lost Shoes is available for both girls and boys, with different illustrations for each.
Two books in the middle grade fantasy series, The Mystery of Nida Valley that contain Australian megafauna have been released and I am working on the third. I am passionate about teaching children about the little-known megafauna of Australia.
The non-fiction book, Meet The Megafauna is now available. Dippy the Dancing Diprotodon is the first book in a series of picture books that will feature two of the animals interacting as they would have in the wild. This one features the marsupial lion and the diprotodon.

What better gift for Christmas than books that will encourage your child to read and that your child will treasure...
The kids will love this exciting series as they follow Evie and her Fearless Friends while they investigate the Graffiti Bandit who is defacing things Evie loves, solve the mystery of the ghost who is haunting the historic manor that her mother’s family once owned, and prove the innocence of her friend, Ruben’s, father.
But they could never have imagined the danger they would face and the things she would discover along the way – things like magic, ghosts, and witchcraft – and information that will change her life.
