Zoe moved from Hamilton in the Western District of Victoria where she
was born, and resides in outer suburban Melbourne. She is married with
four sons, and has six grandchildren. Her hobbies include cycling,
water-colours, spending time with family and friends, a bit of travelling
Zoe loves writing and has spent decades putting together the stories of the novels
A Walk In My Skin and Speak English Like Australians!
The Speak English Like Australians! novel is supported by a series of 4 EAL/EFL Grammar & Activities Textbooks, and all with answers to help English learners.
As a language teacher over many years, Zoe loves her vocation and always learns a lot from her students! She has worked for AMES, Chisholm Institute and Swinburne University of Technology.
Working with Australian-born as well as migrant learners from many countries, Zoe knows learners need to understand idioms, slang and conversation expressions so they feel part of life in Australia. Imagine the confusion of new arrivals to Australia who hear, “Howyagoin?” rather than, “How are you?” Therefore, these expressions and slang are used in the books.
