Taya Wood in The Whitsundays

About me

Laughter is my medicine

Music is my muse

Dance is my freedom

Nature is my sanctuary

Storytelling is my purpose 


I was born in Wales, UK, and grew up in The Great Sandy Desert of Western Australia, and on an island in Papua New Guinea. I now call the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia, home. Some random facts about me:

  • I love onomatopoeia words (and alliteration always and affectionately). 
  • I’m ridiculously gullible—tell me anything and I’ll believe it (◔_◔).
  • I do a good unintentional pun. 
  • I’m around 62% fickle—wait, make that approximately 76%.... I think.
  • Do I contradict myself—Um, yes—I am large, I contain multitudes.
  • Have rope, will tie self to tree.
  • Current overused punctuation: the em dash.
  • There's a good chance that I'm not entirely normal.
  • Tell me that something is impossible and I'll prove you wrong. Limits are just forced breaks.


A lifelong interest in storytelling and metaphysics, led to writing speculative fiction. THE ZiNDER SERIES has taken many years to unearth and I'm stoked to share it with you ❤️ 


A career in graphic design and consulting in the creative industries inspired me to create the LIFE MOMENTUM™ PERSONAL EMPOWERMENT SYSTEM and several self-help books, including READY SET PRO
