She was born to her British parents in South Africa in December 1972.
While studying to become a journalist, she trained as a specialist book supplier and has worked in the industry for over two decades.
She is the proud mother of two children and is besotted with cats and the plight of abandoned animals.
Her first book, Four in the Morning, was published in July 2015. Based on a true story, it gave her the opportunity to share her story with the world, albeit as a novel in order to protect identities.
Her hope is that her book will uplift those who have experienced tragedies of their own and add a touch of kindness and humanity to anyone who may be, or may have been in a dark place at some point in their lives.
