Lorraine Pestell was born in London and has had a successful career as an Information Technology professional in the UK, US, Europe, Singapore, and more recently Australia. After migrating to Melbourne, Victoria, in 1999, Lorraine currently resides in Perth, Western Australia, with her 13-year-old dog, Jed.
Although still working full-time, Lorraine is a passionate volunteer for several organisations, including serving on the Board of Directors of Propel Youth Arts WA, being a mentor for The Smith Family's iTrack program and providing project management assistance to The School Volunteer Program. She finds that volunteering time and energy to those less fortunate is an effective antidote to life-long depression and the symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
The idea for "A Life Singular" originated when Lorraine was 14 years old, and the story has continued to develop in fits and starts since then, whenever time and life events permitted. However, three years ago, a new element of the plot triggered a sudden urge to complete the novel, and since then the story has evolved into six separate parts.
