From Auckland, New Zealand and trying self publishing for the first time. Previously dabbled in journalism after studying it in school.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Hastings, New Zealand and that definitely influenced my latest book After The Fall as I had my home town in the back of my head as I wrote the story about a young woman from a smaller town who goes to live in the big smoke just as I did. It can be overwhelming to adjust to big city living and then weird to go back.
When did you first start writing?
I wanted to be a journalist when I grew up so it was well over twenty years ago. Then Ieft school and developed an interest in computers, going into IT when I could and now I work in telecommunications. Writing became an interest again with my children starting to grow up and me wanting to have a hobby and then it went from there. I've always had the stories in my head, now they're written down.
