Welcome! I'm Lisa and I'm

Welcome! I'm Lisa and I'm

I’m an Australian author who writes stories about women, for women.

When it comes to my books, I’m a bit of a mixed bag of genres…but that’s because I follow where the characters lead me. And it just so happens they’ve led me to rural romance, women’s fiction and, most recently, to dual timeline modern historical fiction.

But the one thing all my books have in common is that they’re about complex, strong women and the relationships that shape their lives.

I’m passionate about giving back to the writing community and run a weekly writing tips session called Mentor Mondays on my Instagram and Facebook pages.
