What do I write?
Smart, sweet and sassy fiction that reflects the international lives we lead – or dream of. No matter where you are, life can be complicated. But it’s also full of magic, possibility and second chances. So yes, you’ll definitely find a happy ending here!
I grew up in a family of itchy-footed readers and dreamers – not concentrating, reading the atlas and Narnia books, and planning to escape somewhere magical as soon as I could. When I was 16, I went from New Zealand to live in Sweden for a year. It was the beginning of many travels and adventures – and quite a few disasters! I didn’t know it at the time, but eventually I’d be grateful for all the ups and the downs. As writers say in the face of adversity: “I can use that.”
Having come full circle, through seven cities in four countries, I’m now back in New Zealand in my 39th house – probably not the last! Luckily, I have a tall, dark and handsome husband to help look after our two boys while I dream up stories. Turns out that happily-ever-afters happen in real life too.
