Growing up as an only girl in a household of boys, Ava escaped into the blissfully quiet world of books from an early age.
Her passion for romance was piqued early in life, due to her Nana's front room; which had been turned into a library to house her romance novels.
Merging humour with romance and a sprinkle of mystery, Ava writes stories about strong heroines and the men who love and accept them, the way they are.
Her work was longlisted for 2019 Richell Prize for Emerging Writers.
The Lady Detective won 1st Prize- Historical - Orange County Rose Prize for Emerging Writers 202o and was a 2nd round winner in LERA's The Writer competition.
