I’m from: Port Lincoln, South Australia. New York originally. In 1978 I got a job as a violinist with the Adelaide Symphony and have lived in Australia ever since.
Three words to describe me: driven, curious, hyperactive
My worst habit: Continually stopping to edit as I write! I’m really fighting to break this habit. I know it slows me down and compounds self-doubt, but I just can’t stop!
My day job was: teaching violin. I’ve since ‘retired’ to write full time.
I’m saving for: a trip to America to visit relatives in New York and Boston. If I can combine the trip with a writers conference or book signing, so much the better!
I procrastinate by: fussing over writing related errands (answering emails, adding to my website, planning retreats) and telling myself I’m really working.
Three things people might not know about me: I have an extra toe on my right foot, (No, Hannibal Lecter had an extra finger), I used to run a donkey sanctuary; as a uni student I was loaned a two-million dollar Stradivarius to play on for a year.
Person I would most like to meet: Alfred Hitchcock
Latest project: Another suspense set in the North-eastern US.
