Trinity was born in Sydney and grew up in the suburbs of Lake Macquarie. Trinity fell in love with reading at a young age, her most read book as a child was The Doll Hospital by James Duffy closely followed by The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe by C.S Lewis. All those thousands of words between the covers and the fact that someone put them there felt very magical and out of reach. Trinity found when she tried to write she couldn’t get the book she just read out of her head—what possible story was there to tell other than Elizabeth discovering a secret box and that box changing her life? During creative writing at school Trinity found she was very good at beginnings and building suspense—and then Jack fell back in time for some reason; Mary knew that when she got home from school something terrible was going to happen—but not much good at middles or ends. So she stopped trying to find the magic that somehow made all the words and pursued other interests like boys and nail polish.
During this time Trinity dreamt of becoming a filmmaker or photographer. After her film for the HSC, a mocumentary about a broom puppet diva, caused her no end of stress she thought that dream might be too much trouble and studied Graphic Design at Uni instead. Her early twenties were filled with music, shows, art and cute dresses.
At 25, now married and working as a designer, Trinity found the young adult section of the book store and returned to her first love of reading. She devoured every title she could get her hands on from Melina Marchetta to Stephanie Perkins—it was story and it was love. Trinity had been writing again, fan fiction for the short-lived TV show My So-Called Life, and with all these new stories flying around in her head one finally hit that was hers.
