Welcome to Libby's website, thank you for visiting.
Australian-born, Libby is originally from Maitland near Newcastle
in New South Wales and lives in Orange with her husband.
As a keen traveller, many locations - country, coastal and city -
have inspired her artworks and form a backdrop for Libby's stories.
After raising a family, Libby was itching to pick up a paint brush
and put pen to paper. She has been writing fiction and creating art since 2006.
Libby's desire to explore the world of art led her to complete a
Certificate IV in Fine Arts where she participated in several group exhibitions.
She held a solo exhibition in 2008 called 'The Empty Nest'.
In this exhibition, Libby reflected upon her own experiences as a mother contemplating an 'empty nest' after her own children had left home.
The compulsion to write has been strong.
Libby has written four fictional novels.
One of these novels - The Jasper Plate - has been
self-published and is available for purchase
in paperback & hardback form and also as an ebook.
(please see the other pages of this website for more detail)
that other people will enjoy reading her stories,
as much as she has enjoyed creating them.
