Writing has always been a passion for me and it brings me great joy to be able to share these stories with you.
I was born in the late fifties in Gore - a small town in the South Island of New Zealand. After finishing school in Invercargill, I trained at Otago University Medical School to be a doctor.
Throughout the years, I have worked in a variety of medical disciplines, women's health and general practice, in New Zealand and overseas and currently work as an Occupational Physician in Wellington.
Writing has always been a hobby, and in 2004, in collaboration with a number of other women doctors, in a variety of specialities based in New Zealand, In Practice, the lives of woman doctors in the 21st century was published by Random House. This book details young women doctors moving into what was then a male dominated industry and how they balanced their professional careers with their personal lives.
I myself have three grown children and one very spoilt dog. I spend my weekends developing a garden in Martinborough, reading books and writing about Euphemia Sage. My long running days are over. I have completed two marathons and now only go for short runs.
I have been working on the Euphemia Sage series for a little over two years and can't wait to share this adventure with you.
'Hot Flush' comes out on 8 May 2017 and you'll be able to order directly through this website or online via Amazon, Goodreads and iBooks.
Euphemia Sage, 53 year old business consultant, wife and mother watches in horror as her friend is taken hostage. Her brand new superpowers are untested and no match for a gun. She has 24 hours to save Jane, but how?
A new wave of female medical students trained in the 1970s and entered a profession previously dominated by men. How do these women combine their professional and personal lives? What influence have they had in the health arena?
