I live in Pokeno New Zealand, growing chillies, garlic and peppers. My farm is almost completely off the grid. (Just needs to buy the batteries to store power for when the sun goes down at night).

I love all things prepping and re-learning all the old skills lost to our children’s generation.

I love reading, historical romances and in my younger days read all the books written by Barbara Cartland and Kathleen Woodiwiss (my favorite historical romance writers). I also love reading science fiction and one of my favorite authors is Anne McCaffery and her Dragons of Pern books. My favorite Christian books are the Left Behind series.

I used to be a choir director/conductor in my church for many years, until my passion for writing took over. I have been a writer for a farming/lifestyle magazine, where I wrote about my experiences with turning bare land into a food forest. I am still working on this. I also submit articles to a Eco magazine.

I have two published books in 2015:
The first book in a historical romance series – ‘Rachel’. Book Two titled ‘Rose” to be released 2016
The first book in a sci fi/survival/EMP series – ‘The One’ Book Two titled ‘The Chosen Ones’ to be released 2016

Future books are:
‘Don’t Throw That Out’ – A book on the added uses for household items thrown into the rubbish bin
