ABOUT ME

I was born in Lancashire a few decades ago, where I lived with my parents and 2 older brothers until the age of 9.  My father felt we needed more adventure in our lives, and so he took us thousands of miles away to live North of the Tugela River in a place called Zululand, in South Africa.  There were crocodiles in the river, sharks in the sea, snakes in the bush and zebra and all kinds of buck in a small game park just a short walk up the road.  One of our neighbours kept "guard geese" but most had Alsatians and Staffies.  We had a soppy black Labrador called Sheba... 

I stayed in South Africa until I was 23, at which point I felt I needed to see more of the world.  First, I returned to England, then travelled around Europe and Ireland, went to live in Australia for a year (bunny hopping from the East to the West Coast of America), then finally returned to London via New Zealand and Thailand.  Other adventures have taken me trekking in the Himalayas, scuba diving in Bora Bora, dog sledding in Norway and surfing in Devon!

Four books, three dogs (not all at the same time, unfortunately), two children and one husband later (the last two at the same time!), I am now looking for my next adventure...
