Born and raised in New Zealand, the elder of twins and with an older brother. Growing up I was fascinated with books and large shipwrecks. In my early twenties I spent a year working on Cruise Ships, to my mothers aprehension. I think she actually thought I might wish one to the bottom of the ocean, just to see a shipwreck in process. After that I worked for Club Med resorts (and yes, they are everything you’ve ever heard about them.)
On a brief trip back home I met my (now) husband, and in a fit of “Argh I’m nearly 30!” panic, I decided to stay and see what would happen. He proposed after 2 months and we’ve now been married for almost 8 years.
I’ve always dabbled in writing, and in 2011 I finished a book ‘Charlie and Pearl’ which I uploaded onto the Harper Collins Authonomy website at the end of July 2011. In December 2011 it made the top 5 (out of some 11,000 odd books) earning a coveted medal. I have recently edited it and published it on Amazon Kindle here
My 2012 project was the topic of this blog – ‘The Year of Wonderful Weekends’
