When not busy with her own writing, Ingrid does pre-publication reviewing/editing for American and British science fiction/fantasy writers.
Ingrid is married to Peter, a mainframe computer software engineer, whom she calls ‘her greatest supporter and severest critic’ when it comes to her writing. The couple has one daughter.
Motivated by the near-blindness of her now deceased mother, one of Ingrid’s goals is to make a wide range of reading choices available to people with visual difficulties. She also works to encourage more reading in the younger generations and to convince them that although e-books have their place in this rapidly changing world, ‘the best sort of books actually have paper pages.’
She is very proud to be an active member of The Society of Women Writers of Western Australia.
Ingrid first book, Little Australian Pony Girl, tells the true tale of a young girl growing up on a small pony farm and is illustrated with over 100 photographs. A specially edited e-book version is also available on Amazon.
Her first novel, an Australian saga set in rural New South Wales, entitled Where the Waratahs Bloom, will be released later this year. She is currently working on her next novel based on life in a Sydney boarding house in the 1980s.
