Born and raised in Brisbane, Australia, I worked as a newspaper reporter and parliamentary researcher before moving to London in 1991 to read international relations at the LSE and work in policy research and communications.
In 2014, I founded and helped to run an international humanitarian charity. With a team of wonderful highly-trained researchers and a worldwide network, for five years we raised awareness of great charities working at the heart of world's serious crises, until funding died. In early 2019, I began drafting the novel 'The Journey of Water', in large part inspired by a 600 mile walk from London to Geneva I undertook while working for the charity.
In Jan 2021, I graduated from the MFA program at Queens University in Charlotte NC. I'm very fortunate to have worked with some great teachers including MFA Director and Author, Fred Leebron, and Random House Vice President and Executive Editor Andrea Walker.
Away from the writing desk, I like to be in nature, explore ideas, and end up in 'random' adventures, all the while falling into a deeper spiritual journey. I keep a journal, post on Insta Facebook and Twitter, and share what's new with a very special group of subscribers. I don't email unless I have something of value to share and much time can go by! Patient, warm and supportive, their enduring connection is a great support to me.
What do I care about?
Revealing the love between us all, and its power to transform our world.
