After working in corporate environments for a number of years, I had a germ of an idea to embark on a romance writing career. I joined RWNZ and with the support of its members and by attending conferences and workshops, I finished my first manuscript in 2009 and publication followed in 2010. Since then I have published a number of books both traditionally and self published. I love romance writing and reading as well as talking about it with other members.
