About me

Working Part-Time - to find the time

It was hard to be in a good state of mind to write while working full-time night shift. So I transitioned to working two night shifts a week. I can pay my bills and spend 5 days a week on writing pursuits.

I want to write novels but decided to write about something I already knew well to help get into the habit of writing. So my travel stories were an easy choice. 

The travel writing has taken off and I love every second of it. The book of my travels, “365 Dates of Travel” has been released in two volumes: The first six months and The SECOND six months. Both available now. The book is in two halves as I wrote over 230,000 words!

In the background my creative brain has plotted out novels for future writing. It seems cosy mysteries are in my future writing career. As well as a novel about discovering what our grandparents really did during world war two with a Nazi gold treasure hunt amongst other little nuggets to keep the story moving. 

About me

Fran in Zero Gravity

I am based in Melbourne, Australia but have lived in London, Copenhagen and New Jersey. I’ve been to 57 countries but want to visit over 190.

I’m a poor excuse of a redhead who loves ancient ruins and drains, hates dusting, revels in going behind the scenes, can’t smile in photos and detests selfie sticks.

Fran with lionsI have wanted to be a writer since I was nine but also had aspirations of being a famous actress, an astronaut and owning a youth hostel. I became a traveller, a career nanny and a neonatal nurse instead.

Now I want to live my dreams of a writing life.

Starting with travel stories was the easiest way to begin. Cosy mysteries and other novels will come.
