- I am a mother of two and live on the Surf Coast in Victoria. I finished my Diploma in Professional Writing and Editing in 2005. I love writing for children although I write short stories and articles for adults too. I have had three books published, two are educational readers, but would love to have a trade book published. I'm working on it! We have two cats, a dog who loves running on the beach and a bunny.

I have a feeling that the more manuscripts I send out the more rejection letters I will receive. When I see that SSAE sitting in the mailbox, I pick it up with a sense of dread, knowing too well what is inside. I sit on a weathered bench seat under the tree near the mailbox, open the envelope and see the words of 'unfortunately....' But in some strange, dark and disturbing way the rejections give me at least some contact with publishers. One day I have a feeling that I will get a happy letter. It's just a matter of when. Tootle pip!
