My Story

When I was pregnant, I attended a pediatric first aid course. As we learnt how to perform CPR, a thought entered my mind. I wrote it down and it became a book, THE VANISHING TIDE. I have always been a reader and writer. My job as a trend forecaster involves telling stories and illustrating images with words. It was a long-held ambition to write a novel and it took over ten years from conception to publication. I am now working on a second book, SWIMMING HOME which deals with similar themes: family, loyalty, and secrets. It will be published in 2023.
