Greetings from New Zealand! A Kiwi born and bred, throughout my life I have enjoyed many interests, but the mainstays have always been reading historical fiction and writing, some of the others being gardening, music and painting. Married and a working mother until retirement, I never quite got the opportunity to start that first novel I always wanted to write. However, about ten years ago, I undertook a course in Creative Writing at the NZ Institute of Business Studies and my debut novel ‘Bridie’s Dream’ was the result. I have continued to explore the life of Bridie further with 'Bridie's Joy'.
