I was born in Melbourne, Australia, but have lived and worked in Papua New Guinea and the Middle East and travelled to more than thirty countries. During my time abroad I studied as an off-campus student with Deakin University and achieved my BA (Hons) while raising my three children.

After graduating with a PhD in history from the University of Melbourne, I had my first two books: 'Georgette Heyer's Regency World' and 'Georgette Heyer' (the biography) published in both the UK and the USA.

My first novel, 'The Cinderella Moment', was published by Penguin Australia and Swoon Romance in 2013 and was followed by the sequel, 'The Rapunzel Dilemma' in 2014.

I've had lots of fun giving talks around the world on Georgette Heyer and the Regency, and a

I wondered how she'd feel about that if she was in the modern world and what she'd make of 21st century life. I wanted to find out so I wrote a book! It will be out next year.(less)

I first met Georgette Heyer’s nephew, Major-General Jeremy Rougier in 2003.

Jeremy was only seven when, in May 1940, his father was killed in Belgium. Despite his father’s tragic death, Jeremy chose a military  career and attended Sandhurst. He was first an offic...

Hi Katie

That is such great news and so kind of you to write and let me know. I'm delighted that my book enhanced your enjoyment of Friday's Child - one of Heyer's wonderful Regency novels and her own personal favourite. I've had so much pleasure from her books and it's a real privilege to be able to write about her life and writing. Thanks so much for messaging me.

Katie Winkler I received my copy of your Heyer biography in the mail recently and am looking forward to reading it. I also enjoyed reading your book "Georgette Heyer's Regency World." It helped immensely with a sample travel project for the online British literature course I teach here in North Carolina. I also just finished re-reading "Friday's Child," and having just finished your informative book just added to my enjoyment of one of my favorite Heyer novels. Thank you.
