My Story

I've been a journalist, editor and fiction writer for more than 30 years, starting as a junior writer with Australia's leading lifestyle magazine, Cleo, and going on to edit TV HITS and B magazines (which, during my tenure, out-sold Marie ClaireVogue and Elle).

I've run publishing bureaus in London, New York and Los Angeles, have freelanced for a giddy variety of publications—from The Australian Women's Weekly to the Herald—and have published numerous books, including fiction and non-fiction, hard covers, paperbacks and e-books.

Now a best-selling author at Amazon, Apple, kobo and Barnes & Noble, my fiction includes six books in the popular Ghostwriter Mystery Series: Killer TwistA Plot to Die ForLast Writes, Dying Words, Words Can Kill and A Note Before Dying as well as three in the The Agatha Christie Book Club series and two stand-alone novels, Do Not Go Gentle and An Island Lost. All my novels are available widely including online at Apple and Amazon.

I've also researched and written an extensive corporate biography, A Measure of Papua New Guinea (Focus; 2008), and had numerous articles published in Australian text books and design manuals.

Now teaching self-publishing and writing at the Byron Community College, I also do private tutoring and consultancy work.

I'm based in the Byron Bay hinterland in Northern NSW, Australia, where I live with my husband, musician/producer Christian Pyle (Acre, Ghost Mountain), two sons, passing koalas, the odd kangaroo and countless snakes.
