a slight case of jetlag led me to open a car door into my forehead....


I live in a paradise, on the beautiful sub-tropical Sunshine Coast of Australia. I've variously been a mother and housewife, secondary school teacher, 'ringer' (station hand) helping to run our cattle property, independent director of the national board of Australia's Open Garden Scheme (2000-2010), sometime shopping centre developer, tour guide, volunteer, garden designer and public speaker. Lately travel writer, and now aspiring author.

My passions in life are family and friends, writing, photography with my iphone and gardens.





"I never travel without my diary.  

One should always have something

sensational to read on the train."
