So far I've written:
||four books for primary-aged readers
||three for intermediate (or middle school)-aged readers
||three for secondary-aged readers
||lots of short stories (I have also co-edited an anthology of short stories for children).

I have a bach at Omaha Beach, which is an hour's drive north of Auckland, New Zealand. Just imagine four kilometres of silky white sand and crystal-clear water. Sometimes when I go down to the beach I'm the only person on the whole four kilometres of sand. I love walking beside the sea and watching the seagulls and dotterels and oystercatchers - and thinking about my stories.
Please come in and explore Story-Go-Round - and find out how much the sea and the shore have influenced my work.
