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)
Libby's hope: 
that other people will enjoy reading her stories,
as much as she has enjoyed creating them.
