Prue was born in Australia and studied history and politics at the University of Tasmania. She has worked as a hotel cleaner, a cosmetician in a major department store, and a bookseller. But most properly, she has been a journalist/researcher for the Australian Broadcasting Corporation where she met her husband.
Prue writes historical fantasy for which A Thousand Glass Flowers (Book Three of the quartet, The Chronicles of Eirie) received a silver medallion in the 2012 Readers' Favorite Book Awards in the USA. She secured a dedicated niche following for her fantasy world of Eirie and plans to return there for further books in late 2018.
Currently, she writes historical fiction, for which Gisborne: Book of Pawns received an Honourable Mention in the 2012 Golden Claddagh Writing Contest (USA), a 2013 Rone Award (USA) and a 2014 Indie Book Readers' Appreciation Group's gold medallion (USA).
Tobias (Book One of The Triptych Chronicle) was a semi-finalist in the M.m.Bennetts Award for Historical Fiction 2016 and has been awarded the prestigious gold medallion by the Indie B.R.A.G (USA) and was shortlisted for the 2016 Chanticleer Chaucer Award for 2016. Tobias escalated to Top 100 with Amazon.co.uk (Biographical Fiction) within a day of being released.
Her most recent novel, Guillaume, from the same trilogy, was nominated for the Dorothy Dunnett Award of 2017 and won the Chanticleer 2017 Chaucer Award.
The Huffington Post has done stories on her work and she has been interviewed as an indie writer a number of times by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.
Prue is also an embroiderer, gardener, sometime farmer, dog-lover and a self-confessed sea-junkie and chocaholic.
