A little bit about me…
I am a writer from New Zealand. I have lived here my whole life, but have spent much of my time travelling – and even more of my time dreaming about where I would like to go next!
To cater to my writing and travel passions, I’m currently studying Travel Journalism with the New Zealand Writer’s College.
Writing became a passion/obsession for me, years ago when some family issues rose, and I used it as a productive creative outlet for emotional relief from the everyday pressures at the time. To my surprise, I never stopped!
As a writer you generally write a lot of ‘what you know’ (not that I stand by that term!). The majority of my books, so far, have common themes and threads that remotely link them together.
1. Surfing: There is always some sort of surfing activity.
2. Environment: My novels generally have some sort of environmental focus weaved throughout the fiction.
3. Design Elements: Due to my design background, the locations and houses that I write about have a descriptive design edge.
Professionally, I moonlight in the corporate world, but there is no way that I could ever consider my professional world as my life. I have far too many other worlds running around up top to do that!
My other interests include family and friends, art, music, surfing, and snowboarding. I have been married for five years to Michael, my constant supporting rock, who always stands by my side – and never reads my work.
