I'm an Australian Foster Carer and Educator with over a decade of industry experience.
I run the Facebook page "More Than A Foster Carer", where I share my experience working with the foster system.
I live in rural New South Wales with my husband, a changing number of children, a dog and some chickens.
As a self proclaimed creative soul, I have had a passion for writing fiction from an early age. When I'm not wrangling chickens, children or dogs, I love to be whisked off on magical adventures, and tagging along on epic quests.
The second book in the “Kids in Care” series is called “Molly’s many families”.
Blurb: “She read me the story of Goldilocks and the three bears and said that sometimes finding the right family was just like that. Some were too busy. Some were very different. But some were just right.” My name is Molly. I have lived with many different families since I became a foster kid. Some families are forever, and some are just for a little while. Let me tell you about all of mine…
I’m excited to say that Molly’s story is finished, and being edited!
My first children’s picture book in the “Kids in Care” series is called “My name is Sam”
I live with my mum and dad and our dog Lucy.
My tummy mummy lives in another house. Sometimes I get to go and visit her.
My family might not be like yours, but that’s okay.
There are many kinds of families.
Who do you have in yours?
Sam is a 5yo boy in Foster care who tells us a little about his life, and reminds us that all families are different.
This book aims to reassure children that although they may not live with their own parents, they are still loved, and might not be as different to everyone else as they may think.
The book will be released in early 2020
