Throughout my working life I mainly sat in accounting offices, with a brief sojourn as owner of a country book store, followed by a really enjoyable stint as a proof reader to a provincial newspaper.
Add to that a well-travelled life and love of history [family, as well as Australian] it seemed only a natural progression into putting words on paper. Or, in this case, on a computer.
My first attempt at “dipping my toe in the water” of writing has produced my first novel titled “Interrupted Romance” which is located in both Israel and Australia. I do hope you enjoy a similar excitement to that generated in me while writing it.
I am also a mother [of three grown children] and a grandmother, living in Queensland, Australia and my main enjoyments are reading, writing, fishing and bowling.
