About Me


I grew up in a family of itchy-footed readers and dreamers—not concentrating, reading the atlas and Narnia books, and planning to run away somewhere magical as soon as I could. At 16, I packed my bags and went to live in faraway Sweden. It was the beginning of many travels and adventures…with a few mishaps along the way! Seventeen countries later, I’m living my happily ever after near the beach in beautiful New Zealand, where I love to hang out with my boys, read books, watch movies, and write escapist romantic fiction.
