Writing has truly become a labour of love and passion. Although coming from a family where my grandfather is a published author, I never dreamt that I too one day would follow in his footsteps.
My original profession was nursing with a background in coronary care which has been a rewarding experience, truly character building and a profession that I thought I would continue for a long time. After the birth of my beautiful daughter Ella, my husband Alex and I decided that we would travel around Australia with him utilising his engineering skills working on various projects.
Taking the time to visit wondrous places and to have met diverse people on our travels gave me the inspiration and opportunity to embrace the creativity within me, something in which I always knew coursed through my veins but in how it was to manifest I was not sure.
As fate would have it we lived in Darwin for six months where Rach’s husband Bruce was working on the same project as Alex. Rach came to visit and thus the creation of the book series Polaris Rising was spawned.
The two of us have always had a profound connection, a friendship spanning many years. We uncannily knew that one day we would collaborate together on something that would give back to the community. Being parents and sharing similar outlooks on both life and values that we want to instill in our children, our aim was to create this inspiring series of books as a positive platform for our children and hopefully other parent’s children where the messages in this series of magical tales are of real substance addressing the ideals of living in a world where there is an emphasis on tolerance, acceptance, respect and love.
It is a humbling experience to be a part of this special journey and to be given this unique opportunity to share these books with others
