I write short stories for women’s magazines, and have had stories published in Australia, the UK, Ireland, Scandinavia, America, India and South Africa. My stories have appeared in most mainstream magazines such as Take a Break, Fiction Feast, Woman’s Weekly, Best, Candis, Woman, The Weekly News, People’s Friend, My Weekly, Woman’s Day, That’s Life (Australia), Fast Fiction, Take 5, Dog’s Life, Ireland’s Own, True Romance and others. Some have been published in braille, others in audio form. Some have been commissioned. The stories cover a range of genres, from spinechillers to romance to crime.
I have stories in the following anthologies: 100 Stories for Queensland, 100 Stories for Haiti, Diamonds and Pearls, Spooked, Going Places, Saying Goodbye, Light in the Dark, Fiddle of the Sphinx, Snowflakes and Baubles.
