I was born slightly too long ago in the UK. We had a dilapidated cottage, dogs and cats, and a lot of books.
I now live in Australia in a disorganised bungalow, with my husband and a large number of rats. There are still a lot of books.
My first career was as a scientist and academic, but in 2018, I took a swerve into freelance writing. I now spend half my time teaching science or writing materials for clients, and the other half wrangling the stories in my head into order on the page. Sometimes they co-operate.
