The Author was born when the population was seven million – now it is some twenty-two million. Like many Australians, her forebears migrated in the 1850's to find a better life for their children, part of the largest diaspora of the times.At seven when she found a lurid science fiction magazine, her unsupervised reading started. The cover had an almost naked female in a large wine glass and an interesting alien drinking her blood from a tap below. She has since been hooked on science fiction and fantasy. Completing a commercial course, she was launched on an unsuspecting business world before falling into copywriting. When she married, she commenced writing and even while raising children, found time to publish. Later, she studied arts as a mature age student but writing still dominated her life.
The Author lives in an underground house in the Australian bush, were she maintains her love of writing.
