I was a published author at 17 and used the proceeds to help fund my university studies, during which time I was active in aero-modelling, martial arts, mountaineering, speleology... and studied petroleum seismology among my music-playing friends. After my graduation I worked with French, Norwegian and American geophysical companies, besides being a volunteer translator.
In Sydney since 1995, I am now a mum who does several kinds of volunteer work, assesses manuscripts, reviews books, interviews authors and writes real-life socio fiction.
