Culturally confused: English-born Irish/adopted Kiwi. Wife. Mother of teenage daughter. Theologian with special interests in Spirituality, Mythology and Philosophy. Award winning author (sounds more exciting than it is – but a good prize nevertheless: Ian St. James Literary Award 1989). I have written a children’s play, a couple of published short stories, numerous non-fiction articles for magazines and local newspapers, and advertising material (I know). My first novel – a Mythopoeic fantasy – Silvana-the Greening was published in 2013 by possibly the smallest publisher in the world. The second: Silvana–the Turning will be published this month. In between writing I wrangle goats and chickens.
