I live in Brisbane with my husband and two adult children. As a curious, compulsive reader, I've always known I’d be on the other side of a book someday. That day arrived through Tricked into Being, my first recently published novel. I continue to dabble in writing short stories and poetry too.

Her best and worst moments of life had their beginnings in death-shrouded places.

Socially awkward Daphne feels liberated when her hateful great Nana dies. Shockingly, she learns that the wicked witch who was not Polish, as originally believed, had been living incognito in Australia since 1948 and had travelled from India… with another woman’s baby.

Daphne must now unfurl her maternal family’s tricky past with help from the attractive half-Portuguese lawyer Benny, who has a turbulent past himself. They cross oceans for answers but find deceit. Historic obsessions, betrayals, and curses unfold, which lead to a present-day revenge killing and suicide pacts lined with more lies and half-truths.

Can Daphne trust him? Will parallel events seen between two branches of her family drive them apart or will they defy the stars? Daphne knows she cannot hold a decision off for much longer. She is fighting for her own heart.

Originating amidst the chaos of World War 2, this surreal tale spins a dramatic struggle of two families as they connect the dots. From Europe it travels the colonial route and culminates in Australia where two people defiantly end it – seventy years later.
