About me

Originally from the UK, I lived in Sydney, Australia for more than 20 years, working as a book, magazine and web editor and writer. I’ve more than two decades of publishing experience and am the former editor of Gourmet Traveller WINE magazine.

I am the author of Rose’s Vintage (2016), and Angel’s Share (2017), both set in the lush vineyards of the imaginary Shingle Valley.

Rose’s Vintage and Angel’s Share are both available as audio books on Audible. Both books are also due to be published in Germany by Piper Verlag, and Rose’s Vintage has been published in Poland.

I am currently working on a historical novel set in Cornwall, Chile and Sydney, The Botanist’s Daughter, which will be published by Hachette in July 2018.

I now live in the Northern Rivers of NSW and am also a mother to two girls. When not writing, reading or ferrying them around I can be found in the kitchen, procrasti-baking.
