Evocative Women's Fiction...
Where the past meets the present



I write dual timeline women's fiction—the kind of books for people who love forgotten houses, secrets kept too well and for too long, and romance—in all its shapes and forms.

My first dual timeline book—The Modern Girl—is set in New Zealand and Hollywood in the 1930s and present day New Zealand. It has all the elements avid readers of this genre love: secrets slowly unravelled, an historic house and two love stories.

I live near the settings of my books—Wellington, the Wairarapa, Napier—and have plenty of photos and historical tidbits to share on my blog. Also check out my reviews of my favourite kind of books—historic and contemporary narratives blended together to form wonderful stories which stay with you long after the last page has been turned.
