Brought up in a little country town between Port macquarie and Coffs Harbor I learnt to dance at the age of 2. (ballet, Jazz, tap, anything you can think of really!) I've competed all over Australia for it with great results, and am still dancing now at 17 (soon to be 18) My dream is to be a dance teacher and to write several novels and poetry books for children and teenagers alike.

The dancing allows me to express myself with my body, and the writing I express myself with my mind and soul. No matter whether the writing is completly my or your own, if it is referenced and comes from the heart than that is ultimatley what poetry is all about.
