Author . Mother . Teacher
I was born in Cape Town, South Africa in …oh yes, never trust a woman who tells you her age as she’ll tell you anything. So let’s just say, it was a long time ago. Way too long ago. I’ve been married (that probably aged me further) and divorced and sold the t-shirts to make extra money to feed my three lovely children.
Some might say I have gypsy blood as I’ve moved around a lot, but really I’ve used my teaching qualifications to teach in different countries and travel the world. I have one of those bucket list type of thingies – a list of things to do and places to go before I die. Before moving to Kyiv in Ukraine where I live currently, I lived and worked in Tanzania with armies of ants and frequent power cuts at the foot of Kilimanjaro. You can follow my blog detailing the ups and downs of a writer/expat/mother/teacher living in random places around the world.
For some strange reason, things just seem to happen to me, and this gives me an endless supply of material to write more books. Writing is something I always loved to do from a very young age, and I’ve always been an avid reader. I put my weak eyesight down to all those nights of reading under the covers by torchlight. The teacher part of me will tell you that to be a good writer, you probably need to be a good reader as well. But, enough talk about work-related stuff.
My first book was called Fear, Phobias and Frozen Feet. It’s a non-fiction self-help book about how to break the pattern of bad relationships some of us keep getting into. I got the idea to write that book when I was shafted, yet again, conned, yet again, and had my heart broken yet again, while recovering from breast cancer. I got the idea for my first novel on the train to Shanghai. Amazing what goes through your head on a two hour train journey. Stop the world, I need to pee! introduces you to Fenella Fisher, a very different type of main character, one I feel that many people will be able to identify with. C U @ 8 is my latest novel also starring Fenella Fisher. The Case of Billy B, Not Telling and Defective are all novels which were inspired by real events. I have always been fascinated by how people think, act and react when they are put into traumatic or abusive situations. Why people do the things they do, what makes them tick. Survival Tips for the Suddenly Single is a self-help book I wrote for people just coming out of a bad relationship. I am working on two novels at present – Diary of a Dancer and Hush Baby.
Because of my travels, I enjoy writing articles about the places I’ve seen, sharing my trip with armchair travelers at home. My fist travel book is The Great Mountain to Mountain Safari, and is about my road trip from Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, to Table Mountain in South Africa and back again, with only my teenage daughter for company.
I believe that life is a series of adventures. Hope yours are all good!
