A few years ago, after a fulfilling career as a lawyer and legal academic, I thought it was time to start writing the kinds of stories I'd always thought up but never written down. Not coincidentally, they were also the stories that I loved to read. Stories with little to do with corporations law or conveyancing contracts, and more to do with adventure and romance and happily ever afters. On the pretext of improving my editing skills I enrolled in a one year course… which ended up being a masters degree in creative writing. Being surrounded by others who were passionate about writing was the boost I needed to start my second career as an author.
My first novel, In at the Deep End, came out in January, 2017. The story is set in Sydney's beautiful Northern Beaches Peninsula with Antarctica - and a few other locations - featured as well. I am now working on another novel, and have a third in the pipeline.
When I'm not writing or thinking about writing, I happily embrace (most of the time) the chaos of a busy household, work, a large garden, travel, and walking my dogs - Bella and Daphne. I have a wonderful husband and six fantastic children who, to varying degrees, are happy to proofread my scenes….
