I'm a Yankee sheila downunder in the land of no worries, she'll be right, fair dinkum, and am as happy as a joey in a skippy's pouch.
I started writing as soon as I could read. My first short story was an adventure about a little girl who had befriended a horse in an unusal way. It was written on manila paper with a fat #2 school pencil.
When I'm not writing about horses, I'm either drawing them, painting them, or riding them.
