I'm originally from Auckland, New Zealand, but have lived in the USA for 26 years. I studied at Auckland University, New Zealand, and have a BA, MA, Women's Studies Certificate, and a PhD. from the University of Kentucky. I'm interested in Modernist and Victorian Literature, with an added fascination with Dystopian works. I've taught college English for many years, but now devote my time to writing from home. Presently I'm writing a book on grief, entitled Coming Back. It covers my journey care-giving my husband through 6 years of pancreatic cancer.
