A fifth generation Kiwi (New Zealander) I believe my love of travel and adventure came from those adventurous ancestors who came from Scotland, Cornwall, and England in the mid 1800s searching for a better life for their families.  My grandmother called me "the how why and when girl" and this curiosity is invaluable is vital for a nomadic, solo traveler like me.

My travel memoir, Naked in Budapest: travels with a passionate nomad, is available for e-readers on Amazon and other e-book sites, in all formats

I have also written a small book calledSurviving Suicide: a mothers story - this is also available as an e-book 

When not traveling, I now live in Wellington, New Zealands capital, after a lifetime in Christchurch.
