About me

Once a medical doctor in England, I now live in New Zealand and write novelsnon-fiction books and a blog. My latest book You Yet Shall Die is a novel in the “domestic noir” genre, set in the North Kent marshes near my childhood home. Details of all my book publications can be found on my Amazon.com Amazon.co.uk and Smashwords author pages.

After qualifying from the University of Oxford Medical School in 1970, my work experience included oncology, general practice and general psychiatry. I then decided to specialise in the psychiatric aspects of physical illness. I held clinical and research posts in Southampton before being appointed Consultant in Psychological Medicine at the Churchill Hospital in Oxford, with interests in oncology and palliative care. After moving to my husband’s native New Zealand in 2000 I studied natural healing, and ran a Bach flower practice for ten years. Writing is my main occupation now. Other interests include animal welfare activities, choral singing, and visiting the local beaches and cafes.
