I was born in Zimbabwe, and have live in South Africa and England, but now call Australia home. I'm married and have two sons.
When not running around after the men in my life, I get to enjoy my hobbies, which include boating, reading, sewing, travel, gardening, and lunch with my author friends, (not necessarily in that order!)
I’m passionate about different cultures and wildlife, the wilder places in the world and literacy.
