About the Author
Based in Feilding, New Zealand and a Registered Nurse by profession, I started creating low content books for patients as a hobby when I saw a real need due to the boredom of hospitals.
When I’m not working or pursuing this hobby, I can be found supporting my teenage daughter or gardening.
