I am a wife, mother of two, grandmother of four and an author (BA English, MA (Hons) Education).
In my life, I have been a stay-at-home mum, school library assistant, secretary, executive assistant, retailer, seamstress, embroiderer and tutor, local body politician, amateur thespian both on stage and behind the scenes, a professional conference organiser and now I can proudly say I’m an author.
I wonder where the next twenty years in my life will lead me?
I live on the North Shore of Auckland with my husband of over 40 years, within walking distance of the beach – my favourite place to walk, to think and to be at peace.
I love stage musicals, gardening, reading – mostly historical novels – and genealogy. I do a lot of family history research for myself and friends and use true stories I have uncovered as a basis for The PastFinders series. I love horses and equestrian, used to ride, fell off once too often and no longer ride. I leave that to my granddaughter now.
I write every day. I love writing. I do a lot of research.
I started writing seriously in 2007 after years of interest in New Zealand history and genealogy. I am a bit of an idealist at heart and weave family and history together, throwing in a bit of travel, some food and love, of course, love, and my stories come to life.
In my book, 'The Cornish Knot', Megan, a widow of 12 months is still devastated by the loss of her husband. On the anniversary of his death she mysteriously receives her great-grandmother’s journal written a hundred years ago. Embarking on a journey to trace her family tree, she ends up travelling to Cornwall and Florence before returning to New Zealand. Follow Megan as she uncovers secrets that change her life. This story is the first of The PastFinders series.
