After a lifetime of living in rural New Zealand this has provided a rich base for my stories.

I have always written and for many years freelanced for metroploitan and regional newspapers.

I write romance because I love delving into human relationships. It is these relationships in all their diversity that make the human race so fascinating.

I've been asked why Romance and my answer is always: I write romance because to me first and last, family matters.

“The Road Not Taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.”
Robert Frost
