After many years working as a solicitor in a one person practice in Mt Eliza, Victoria, the author retired a few years ago to stay at home with her husband who was suffering from dementia. Eventually he entered a nursing home where he died in 2003. She has two adult sons and three granddaughters.
As well as reading voraciously, the author is a keen foodie and cook. This had led to conscientious daily walks. When not walking, reading, eating or cooking she is a spectator of cricket and football especially if Collingwood is winning and a concert goer especially chamber music. The author’s only published work is a short story in Meanjin and three short pieces in the English food magazine Petits Propos Culinaires. Like most novice writers she has an unpublished novel gathering dust on the floor of her study.
