I first started telling stories as a journalist, then as a teacher, tour guide, babysitter and Toastmaster.
Although I grew up in Sydney, Australia, I have travelled most of my life and have continued telling stories along the way, in various jobs and industries.
In 2004 I discovered blogsites and used these as an online travel diary to keep friends updated with my stories and photos, progressively adding my pre-2004 travel adventures online.
The Goldilocks Trilogy name was inspired by an epic bedtime story saga during my babysitting years. The kids would ask for a Goldilocks story, which eventually spanned over five years and featured an array of characters.
I've since returned full circle to my writing and grammarly ways after a 20-year detour. I've noticed that writing is like riding a bicycle - once you learn, you never forget.
