Hello and welcome...

I'm an international journalist, editor, teacher and author of 16 books, including three crime series, a psychological-suspense, and a non-fiction book on Papua New Guinea (where I was born). I now run a self-publishing business from the Byron hinterland on the east coast of Australia where I live with my muso hubby, two sons and a very cheeky Bluey.
