Viv has a background in education and research (Ancient History) but her first love is writing. Since becoming a parent, Viv has focused increasingly on writing for children and enjoys creating heart-warming and humorous stories for the picture book market and young readers.
Viv has been longlisted for the Bath Flash Fiction Competition (2018) and the Just Write for Kids Pitch It competition (2020) and in 2019 won the Book Links short story competition. She has completed writing courses with AWC and Writing NSW and is a member of CKT and Book Links.
Viv is working to make writing her full-time occupation but until that happy day, she fits writing in between teaching, studying and having a blast with her husband and son.
