I am an Australian puzzle writer, and the founder of the Clue Detective Puzzle Agency - I have been creating puzzles since 2003. I write a range of different puzzles including crosswords, codewords (code-breakers) and trivia quizzes.

The puzzle I most enjoy creating is the codeword. I am the author of Crack the Codeword 1 : 48 Brainteasing Puzzles to Improve Your Knowledge and Increase Your Word Power.

I have a puzzle column in the (weekly) Trader Tag Classifieds newspaper, which is sold in newsagents across Victoria, Tasmania and Queensland, every Thursday. This column includes a large quick crossword, a codeword, two sudoku puzzles and a general knowledge trivia quiz.

I also freelance for the (Summer) Sydney Morning Herald.

I live on the Bellarine Peninsula, near Geelong with my husband. When not involved with puzzles, I enjoy fundraising for good causes, travelling, cooking, knitting for my four nephews, and reading detective fiction.
