Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in the eastern suburbs of Sydney, moving to the western and northern suburbs in later life to work and live. I have also lived and worked in London, Scotland, Canberra and now Victoria, so these chalk and cheese differences in life have all helped to broaden my outlook.
When did you first start writing?
I suppose I have written all my life, starting with holiday letters to grandparents and relatives as a child. Lots of family letters home while travelling followed, then copious assignments for study and work. I have kept a continuous diary since 1989. In 1985 I wrote a Paediatric Nursing textbook and ambitiously even undertook the photographs. When my busy life slowed and I found I had the time, I wrote two fiction books for pleasure. These two started out as one large book but decided to publish as two as it is a saga over 5 generations. I readily admit that writing is quite addictive and I get a great deal of pleasure from it.
