Unless you have perused the shelves of your local book store or library, you may not realise that the Logie-nominated television personality is also the writer of several health and wellbeing books, as well as the author of a new fiction series aimed at younger readers.

The first book of the Roxy Ran series, White Ninja, follows the story of 13-year-old Roxy, who only learns of her special ninja powers after she is confronted by the school bully. Along with new boy Jackson - who introduces her to the world of martial arts and helps her to understand her new abilities- she learns about a legendary warrior who is being hunted by both the ninjas and the samurai, but is trapped within the confines of the mystical Tiger Scrolls. With this discovery, Roxy and Jackson must embark on a quest to find the Tiger Scrolls and free the White Warrior before the samurai can get to him. But in order to do this, Roxy needs to embrace and unleash her inner ninja.
