MAGIC MANLY was born from my love of animals and spending time in nature, the gratitude I feel for being so fortunate to live in beautiful Manly for 16 years, and a lifelong dream to write.
My aim was to create quirky, lively stories for young children using loveable characters and positive messages, with little lessons about friendship, self esteem, acceptance and respect. My three main characters, Davy the smiley dolphin, Leroy the upside down owl and Elvis the little penguin, have come to life with such an impact and have completely stolen my heart.
My books are my way of contributing toward educating children about kindness to all animals, the protection of the environment and our precious marine life.
If you head on down to Manly wharf, you may even see Bruce, Joe and Nicole on Ocean Dreaming!
I hope you love Magic Manly as much as I love writing it.
