After many years teaching in Early Childhood Education and raising our three lovely children, my love of children’s books has led me to write my own book, Counting in the South Pacific. Now I am very pleased to be releasing my 2nd children’s picture book, Reading in the South Pacific.

I have now been living in Fiji for nearly four years. During this time my first book, Counting in the South Pacific has been very well received. It is my greatest pleasure to witness first hand a local Fijian opening my book and instantly recognising their own community . It is an emotional experience that has reinforced my belief that our Pacific Island communities need more children’s picture books that reflect their culture.
