Publishing a novel has been an exciting time in my life. The Thai Wife grew from when I lived in Thailand as a teenager on student exchange. My time there has made me who I am today, gave me the inspiration to write and has given me endless opportunities.
I live in the most southern part of Australia's coast on a property with my husband. We swim, fish, love life and have two beautiful children.
