Write Home



You found my Inter-nest – thank you! As a British expat, my nest’s lined with dreams of home and laments of hireth. It’s tough, feeling torn between countries; falling down the latitudinal and longitudinal cracks of a foreign existence. 

As a fiction writer, I focus on the search for somewhere, as opposed to someone. My literary mission is to help characters find the place they sleep the best and breathe the deepest. To achieve this, I track them around the world – through vineyards and rainforests, across beaches and stormy moors. I’m Jane Goodall or David Attenborough – without the binoculars or the tropical disease vaccinations. 

Fair warning: it’s not all Julie Andrews twirling and singing in glorious scenery. Or flinging open dusty shutters on a Tuscan villa that needs a remodel. No, mishap and mayhem chaperone every journey.

Join me. I doubt you’ll regret the ride, though I highly recommend trip insurance.


Discover the place you sleep the best and breathe the deepest.
