I was born in Australia in the mid-1970s and grew up in both the city and the country, although I remain a country girl at heart. I did an honors degree in archaeology
at university and then moved to England in my mid-20s.
I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis around this time and my world changed - a lot. Getting a crippling disease was not part of my life plan, but I'd
probably not be doing what I'm doing today wthout it. Another one of those silver linings.
I currently live in South Yorkshire, opposite a cemetery - just in case, and spend my time working at a family business, reading, writing, and looking after a clowder
of rescue cats.
