After publishing several medical books, I returned to my childhood passion for writing fiction. I originally come from England, where I worked as a doctor in clinical and research posts. From 1991-2000 I was a consultant in psychological medicine, with special interests in oncology and palliative care, in Oxford UK. Then my husband and I moved to New Zealand, where I practised as a Bach flower practitioner and life coach for some years, and developed my interests in choral singing and animal welfare. All these varied experiences are reflected in my novels.
