I write historical fiction set in New Zealand, starting in the 1880s. My fifth novel takes the series to 1918. I'm fascinated by social history, particularly that of my own country.
I live in a state of barely-controlled chaos; fortunately I share my life with an invariably calm and endlessly optimistic husband. I divide my time between an apartment in the city, in reach of good espresso, and a few acres in the country, where the rank grass in the orchard is kept under control by a small mob of sheep (and where we have our own espresso machine).
When I'm not writing, reading, or engaged in mundane activities, I play the piano rather badly.read more
Reviews for Mud and Gold (Promises to Keep: Book 2)
This book is part two in the story of Amy Leith and her family begun in Sentence to Marriage. Amy has two sons and is cruelly treated by her husband, Charlie. Her cousin, Lizzie, is happy in her marriage and her husband, Frank, introduces Jersey cows to the area and becomes a prosperous farmer. A but more slow reading than the first book.read more
