I have always been a bit of a nomad. At the moment I spend my life travelling between Kohukohu on the Hokianga Harbour in New Zealand, and the Pacific Island of Rarotonga where my husband Peter and I run an accommodation business.


Kohukohu is a perfect place to write. There is peace and tranquillity, but the Hokianga attracts colourful people with fascinating stories to tell. 

Rarotonga is a magical island where the people are warm and generous and family is at the centre of life.


Albert Einstein said:

"There are two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle."

My stories are about everyday miracles - about hope,
friendship, conflict and love.
