Bio
  • Born in Pietermaritzburg, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa
  • Grew up in Howick, a little country town which has auspiciously positioned itself as ‘The Hub of the Midlands’
  • Never imagined living in Australia and was hopelessly unprepared when my husband and I left the comfortable bosom of family and friends in South Africa to emigrate Down Under in 1997
  • Home is now Brisbane, Australia where I live with husband, three children, Tarna, our golden retriever, 12 chickens and Dexter the cat!
  • Have written a memoir about my migration experience and what it's really like living in Australia - www.aussieactually.com
  • Editor of www.journonews.coman online mag­a­zine des­ti­na­tion for engag­ing content covering talented peo­ple, memorable places and dynamic busi­nesses around the world
  • When I'm not writing, I enjoy reading,  gardening, cooking for family and friends, walking, travel and unearthing  quirky treasures in junk shops.
