I've lived an eclectic and varied career. I delve into what interests me and have been fortunate enough that this has often translated into work. At this time in my career, as well as writing, I work as a trainer, coach and presenter; teaching people how to have effective conversation - coreconversations.co.nz.
Underlying everything I do is a fascination and love of words. My mind likes nothing better than to take an experience or idea, and translate it into writing. I have not always trusted my need to write and have disappeared off on other adventures. But the need to express myself in writing always brings me back to the empty page.
I live on the hills overlooking Wellington, New Zealand, with my husband Peter and our cat and dog.
As well as writing, I enjoy tending my garden, walking our dog,
and drinking coffee while having a good rave about the ways of the world.
I am politically active - mostly environment and climate change issues.
My adult daughters bounce back home from time to time.
