I grew up surrounded by books. Both my parents loved to read and they shared that love with me. In the tiny Australian bush town where we lived, there wasn’t a lot to do except read and ride my ponies.
After University, my love for writing was channelled into journalism, an almost respectable paying job. I worked as a reporter and producer of news and other factual TV programmes in Australia, Hong Kong and the UK.Now - a confession. I don't live in Australia any more. I left those sunny shoes for the UK some years ago. The reason - well, he's English, about five feet 10 inches tall and has green eyes.
After twelve years living in London, I moved to New York City - and now live in an aprtment the size of a shoebox in Manhattan. It's a long way from the Aussie outback.
I still return to Australia each year to visit family and friends and every time it starts snowing, I decide it's time to move back to warmer climes for good. In the meantime - to quote Billy Joel - I'm in a New York state of mind.
