I was born in Plymouth, England, and, like my
dad who was in the navy, I’ve done a fair bit of travelling. Presently, I live
in Japan near the ocean. When I have a chance, I enjoy hiking in the mountains,
swimming, gardening and growing, yoga, listening to music and, of course,
reading lots of books. Job-wise, I’ve taught English to kids, English as a foreign language and linguistics to university students. I’m working part-time now at a university in Tokyo and I’m happy to say that gives me plenty of time to write.
