ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
I like to write with the suspense of Hitchcock, the ambition and romance of Shakespeare and with the adventure spirit of Indiana Jones.
I was raised a global nomad, moving from continent to continent and from culture to culture. I’m a mish- mash of all the places I have lived (namely Baghdad, India, Paris, Berlin, Kampala and London), where I picked up four languages and enough cultures to inspire me to travel and create for years.
Though I live in London, UK, I like to take my characters to where I’ve journeyed. I was raised a third-culture kid, with an American education. Yes, go figure. As a diplomat’s daughter, this introduced me to cultures and lands I would otherwise have only known about on CNN.
I penned my first fiction story when as a teenager I was asked to come up with a narrative under the heading What People Expect of You. The result was a highly acclaimed, creative essay and a series of characters that began camping in the library of my brain. I unleashed some of them in this, my first novel, The Deveron Manuscript. I like nothing better than to improve my craft of storytelling, music composition and curling up with a good story - book, film or theater. The more suspense, the better.
Okay, the academic stuff. I earned International Business and Economics degrees in Paris and have not stopped trotting the planet looking for creative inspiration. I also have a minor degree in political science. My career has journeyed through the world of corporate communications, having made stops in large multinationals in the consumer electronics, technology, FMCG, and the entertainment industries.
I would love to connect with you!
