A new job in the Australian outback ignited The Biocide Conspiracy

My life changed when the Daily News  closed, leaving me
unemployedand penniless. Passing myself off as a governess,
 I found employment on an isolated Australian sheep station 
where I supervised lessons for three young girls educated 
through the School of the Air. UnlikeJane Eyre,  I didn’t find 
Mr. Rochester, but I did find the setting for my debut novel, 
The Biocide Conspiracy.

 Not long after I did meet the one! Striking out for Borneo with
 the new man in my life, I exchanged the no frills life of the outback
 for the pampered world of an ex-pat.  With time hanging heavy,
 I wrote my The White Amah .  A family saga, it exposes the 
shocking practices of the timber logging industry in Malaysia. 

A relative who lives on the streets was the impetus for my 

next book,   Salvation Jane.  The light style I adopted belies
 my true feelings.

Currently I'm writing a black comedy cum fantasy. 
The Little Dog Laughed is the first novel in which I send up 
myself. The protagonist Regina Brigantia is me, thinly disguised. 
I read the first two chapters to my daughter, she recognized me immediately, and fell about laughing. Wonder what she'll say 
when my fictional daughter puts in an appearance?
