Hi, I’m Mollie 🙂
I write fun, beautiful and sensual contemporary romance. I discovered my first love story on a trip to Paris when I was thirteen, and I’ve continued to read them ever since. After trying out a few fascinating careers, I now live my dream as a writer. I passionately believe in the power of love to transform people’s lives. My stories are unashamedly positive, optimistic, full of fun and passion.
I have always believed authors are pens in the hands of writing goddesses sending love letters to the world, and I love it when readers write to me saying that my books gave them hope and courage during tough times.
I love to follow the sun, dividing my time between New Zealand and exotic locations—wherever I intend setting my next romance novel. I live with my very own romantic hero, Lorenzo—tall, dark, terribly handsome and fluent in Spanish!
What I care most about is my family. I have a beautiful adult daughter who has struggled a lot in her life. What’s most important to me is that she’s happy and well and feels loved. During my varied career, I have worked as a child therapist and counsellor. I care deeply about children in jeopardy and people suffering from mental illness and homelessness.
Every day, 1 in 5 Kiwi kids go without the basics that most of us take for granted—including a bed or safe roof over their head. This has a profound effect on their mental, emotional and physical health, education and well-being. New Zealand has amongst the highest youth suicide rate in the world. A Unicef report found New Zealand’s youth suicide rate – teenagers between 15 and 19 – to be the highest of a long list of 41 OECD and EU countries. The rate of 15.6 suicides per 100,000 people is twice as high as the US rate and almost five times that of Britain. That’s an appalling statistic that no Government should be proud of claiming. Bullying, poverty, family violence and other factors play a role.
I am committed to supporting organisations that provide practical, hands-on help. Variety is my chosen charity to support, so children in need have the same opportunities as other kids to experience a happier, healthier childhood and build a foundation for a better future.
