born in Launceston in 1955 and residing in Carlton Beach with my beloved pets. I have to date written four fictional novels. The first to be published is `F n B’s Housesitters’, published by 40south publishing. It’s a humourous tale of two adventurous women who set up a housesitting business in Queensland and the different characters and situations that they need to deal with. The other three novels are Waiting In Wattlevale, Gidgee Harbour and Repent at Leisure, all set in Australia and written with Ozzie slang that we can all understand and relate to. I will be attending Stories Bookshop in Launceston on Saturday the 10th August to launch F n B’s Housesitters and speak, along with other Tasmanian authors.
