About me

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

During my previous medical career, both clinical work and research studies were focused on the psychiatric aspects of physical illness. In 1991 I was appointed Consultant in Psychological Medicine at the Churchill Hospital in Oxford, with special interests in oncology and palliative care. After moving to my husband’s native New Zealand in 2000 I developed an interest in 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.
