I have always been a bit of a nomad. At the moment I am living on the Isle of Wight having returned from Kohukohu on the Hokianga Harbour in New Zealand, and before that, the Pacific Island of Rarotonga where my husband Peter and I ran an accommodation business.

The Isle of Wight is special - being close to so many interesting places but far enough away from the 'real world'.

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.

"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.
