I was born in London in 1970 and arrived in Sydney in 1985.
After studying law and psychology, I returned to the UK for a short while, then spent 7 years in Madrid teaching English as a second language.
When I'm not writing, I work in the plain English sector and train professionals in clear communication writing skills. I served on the board of Plain Language Association International for 6 years.
My passion for crime fiction began when I was a child. My first Agatha Christie was The Murder of Roger Ackroyd and I haven't looked back since. I enjoy reading books with a whodunnit element and I love hoodwinking readers. My stories tend to centre on an amateur sleuth, and the manuscript of my third novel – now well underway – is no exception.
In my spare time, I volunteer with Ankali and Assistance Dogs Australia.
I live on Dharawal Country in the Sutherland Shire, just to the south of Sydney. You may see me jogging through the streets, singing along to Tears for Fears and Cocteau Twins, or sitting around drinking coffee.
