I am a mother, writer and communicator from New Zealand. I began my career as a journalist and worked as a freelance writer and a columnist for The Sunday Star-Times and The Dominion. I then began a decade of work in communications work for the public sector and NGOs.
I love immersion in foreign cultures and my career has been punctuated by stints overseas. I have taught English in France, volunteered in Peru and Mexico and sought out that expansive feeling of travelling in many other nooks of the world. Some of the stories I have written while adventuring are featured on this website.
In 2013 I gained a Bachelor of Applied Arts (Creative Writing) at Whitireia Polytechnic. I have also studied short fiction and science writing at Victoria University’s International Institute of Modern Letters. In 2018 my first book was published by Awa Press: The Heart of Jesús Valentino.
