About Me

Born in the tropical north, Lena lives close to the sea, although over the years she has lived everywhere from large cities to isolated farms. Her most recent home has a deck overlooking the beautiful Blue Water Wonderland of Port Stephens.

After teaching in both Queensland, and New South Wales, where she met her own romantic hero, she took early retirement to travel Australia in a motorhome. This idyllic lifestyle lasted several years, during which time she indulged in the creation of story plots and their settings, culminating in the fulfillment of her lifelong ambition to be a writer when she learnt how to self-publish her stories.

Storytelling came naturally - she had been making up stories for her own entertainment all her life, but it wasn’t until she began traveling that she had time to write down some of her favourites. As well as a series of rural romances set in the fictional town of Oxley Crossing, she also writes contemporary romances and Australian historical romances.

With an addiction to happily-ever-afters, in both her reading and her own stories, the romance genre is a natural fit, and the variety of places she has lived have all contributed to the settings in which she brings love to life.
