About Me

I have always loved to create and, over the years, have enjoyed learning many different crafts. Right now, my favourite crafts are quilting, scrapbooking, mixed-media art, and art journaling.

Along with my passion for crafts, I also love books, both reading and writing. I have published several novels, including the Wattle Lane novels, and a paranormal novel for young adults.

I love to garden and enjoy growing organic vegetables, as well as herbs and flowers to use in my art and in homemade body care products.

I live with my husband, Nick, and our beloved dog, Finn, in the Art Deco city of Napier, New Zealand, surrounded by sunshine, beaches, orchards and vineyards.

Thank you for visiting my blog.

  1. Hi Kristah – I just wanted to drop by and say thank you so much for following my blog 🙂 Your blog is lovely read and I especially loved the steampunk Halloween book! 🙂 Hope it is warmer in New Zealand at the moment than it is in England!


    • Thanks Steph! It is very warm in New Zealand right now – too hot to feel like doing anything. At least all the sunshine is making the garden grow. I look forward to seeing more yummy recipes on your blog!
