Doe’s Circus, one of the last of its kind in Australia. Travelling across the country all year round, thousands of humans visit to revel in the tradition of Dagwood dogs, dodgem cars and the weekend prime time show. 

Yet for the animals locked away in the small confines of the petting zoo, the circus is a neon-lit, human-infested nightmare.

Tormented by the ringmaster and his gang of tyrannical showmen, two pigs, a rooster and a sheep devise a plan to accomplish the impossible―escape the circus.

Guilty pleasures from the late 90s/early 2000s. Also, anything by Nirvana.

Do you have critique partners or beta readers?

I have an editor who did an amazing job with Animal Circus.

What book are you reading now?

I just started reading The Stand by Stephen King. So far so good!

How did you start your writing career?

I started writing novels when I was 12-years-old and haven’t lost any steam with it yet.

Tell us about your next release.

Coming out Oct 7th on Amazon, Animal Circus is a novella about four petting zoo animals who hatch a plan to escape the circus. It’s a story that not only portrays the life of mistreated circus animals, but also looks at the subjective idea of freedom.
