Born in Papua New Guinea, I have always loved the passion of the tropics and after going to boarding school in Sydney, gravitated back up to tropical Far North Queensland. Now that my two boys are safely married and raising their own families, I have the time to indulge my love of books and the written word. I have always had a voyeuristic fascination with people, how they think and why they act in certain ways. This led to studies in Psychology and years of workplace and family law mediation. All of which led me to believe it is impossible to know what another is thinking and the most bizarre fiction could never emulate real life.
What wonderful fodder for a writer! When the iconic John Lennon wrote “All you need is love”, he knew that every living being seeks out love in some form. My novels are about love – romantic, passionate, parental, selfless and self-serving. I will spend the rest of my writing life exploring and writing about the many levels of love. Maybe the day will come when I truly understand it.
