I live in Auckland, New Zealand with my two dogs. Although I have had
training in Beauty and Spa therapy, editing, journalism, animal behavior and
photograpy, criminology and counseling, my main interest lies in writing
novels which allows me to explore and learn about other eras and countries,
creating characters that have deep rooted flaws, but uses those to achieve the

To escape to another world, in another time. To explore exotic locations, and conspiracy theories.

Researching and writing gives me something new each day. I never get bored, as when I research, I just find additional information to add and to learn about.

Writing allows me to be creative, to break boundaries, and to explore the unknown; challenging myself and my readers about what we think we know.(less)
