I write fantasy, often with a nod to folk and fairy tales, myths and legends. I trained in anthropology and I work in the environmental field, so some of that creeps in too. And sometimes I write YA and sometimes I don't.
I grew up in Africa, Malaysia and England but I now live in the tropical north of Australia. The Great Barrier Reef lies just offshore and world heritage rainforests are on my doorstep. I love exploring it all with my family, especially in our little wooden sailing boat.
