About the Author

I have an avid love of being in, on, or by the sea. During the 1990’s, I embarked on an extraordinary, 15-month, sailing adventure, from New Zealand to England. It was not until some years later that I wrote my first book "Caution to the Wind," about this life-changing experience.

Travel is a special interest of mine, as is exploring different theories of thought. My life is a journey of discovery, where I am driven by a deep curiosity, to unravel how our thoughts & emotions, influence, and impact, on the life we live. My love affair with the ocean, combined with a genuine passion to support others, is the inspiration behind my writing.

I live in Sydney, Australia, with my partner Ivan, and two young grandchildren. I have worked for many years as a Social Worker and a Natural Therapy Practitioner.
