I live in Australia's sunshine state - Queensland and have been writing online since about 2005.

I have lots of different interests which can see me writing about anything from chocolate (definitely my favorite food) to the color purple!

I drink way too many mugs of tea during the day which some of my friends attribute to my English upbringing as I didn't move 'down under' until I was 19.

I hope you enjoy reading some of my articles and look forward to reading your comments.
