Hi there, thanks for stopping by!

My name is Carly, I live in Melbourne, Australia & I’d really love to have a book published one day. I enjoy writing Middle Grade fiction, mainly in contemporary settings but I like magical and fantasy elements too.

I have a Bachelor of Education (Primary) and a Diploma in Professional Writing & Editing. In 2006-2007 I was lucky enough to work as a storyliner for the TV show Neighbours, which meant I basically got to play The Sims with the residents of Erinsborough for a living. It was surreal, amazing and one of the best jobs I’ve ever had.

In 2018 I entered the inaugural Scribbles Creative Writing Awards for children’s literature – the brainchild of the wonderful Jen Storer (girl&duck). My picture book, The Yak & the Yeti, made it onto the shortlist and my middle grade short story, Cloud Watchers, won a highly commended spot.

My interests are buying books, buying more books, oh and buying even more books to add to the 830,400,524 books I’ve purchased over the years.
