I was born in Newcastle, Australia and proceeded to move every few years until most of my friends thought I was on a Witness Protection program. My itinerancy included three years abroad, teaching English in Egypt and Poland.
I have been writing almost since I could hold a crayon, but spent too many years working for financial institutions as a bank teller. I have also been a playwright, songwriter, actress, editor, public servant, kitchen hand and - once only - a very bad telemarketer.
My first novel was the crime/thriller,Fly By Night (2004), which was nominated for a Ned Kelly Award. My 2005 novel, Witch Honour, published in the US by Five Star Science Fiction, had been short-listed for the George Turner Prize for Science Fiction and Fantasy in 1998. Its sequel, which was short listed for the same award the following year, was published in 2007.
The Opposite of Life was released in early 2008 and is the first of a proposed trilogy, which is still being written.
Although now settled in Melbourne with my husband and my cat, I continue to relieve itchy feet with regular travel. I now split my time between full time work to pay the mortgage and writing books.
