Her writings were first published in her College Newspaper and various Community Papers while teaching in schools throughout NSW. She won two art exhibitions; (the first, run by her Local Council in Sydney) when she was eight years old—the second, taking out first prize in the prestigious Blue Waters Art Exhibition in Lake Cargelligo, 1984.

One of her life’s highlights was being invited on a painting trip with the famous Brushmen of The Bush when she had the privilege to spend a day with Jack Absolom and Hugh Schulz.

Later, she studied Art at Newcastle University and now enjoys drawing, painting and sculpture. She gained employment as a Community Arts Officer for the Midwest of NSW and now motivates others to pursue their creativity.

Her grandson, Zac, inspired her to write novels when, from age two, he would ask her to “read him a story”, which meant tell me a story. She has brought this to fruition in her SNAUR – The Magical Dragon series.

Dale says, ‘Children have enriched my life; I hope my books will enrich theirs.’
