- Born: Australia.
- Description: Wild places form a big part of my life. My novel Wildlight is set on remote Maatsuyker Island, home to Australia's loneliest lighthouse where my partner Gary and I spent ten months in isolation. I have wintered and summered in Antarctica, the setting for my first novel The Nature of Ice. Each year I work aboard an ice-strengthened ship that sails to polar regions on adventure tourist voyages. My guiding role helped me co-author a young readers' illustrated book Epic Adventure: Epic Voyages, along with my current novel-in-progress, set in the High Arctic. I would love you to visit me at my website.
