Welcome to my online home. I’ve put the kettle on so I hope you can settle into the comfy cushions for a chat. As a British expat living in the United States, I’m fascinated by other travelers’ tales; especially their motivations for repotting themselves in foreign soil. The stories of those who’ve chosen to stay close to their roots are equally as captivating. Soul-searching is a part of each scenario, right? Or is it? Do we simply drift away? Or simply forget to leave? And is it possible to feel foreign at home or at home in a strange land?

I write light-hearted stories about home: what makes us stay, what makes us leave, what makes us return. I hope you can join me as I search for Home.

Oh, the kettle just boiled. Be back in a moment … do you take milk and sugar?

Reviews for Dunster’s Calling:

As someone not living where I was born, I very much related to the emotional dilemmas in the book. I am neither a horse person, nor a lover of cream teas, but I still really enjoyed this book, especially that quintessentially English wit, which had me smiling, chuckling and laughing out loud at times. It is fast paced, involving and understated. The shifting between now and her childhood worked well. Recommended, and looking forward to the next offering from this author.

This book has left me with a longing for both cream teas and a pony. It made me nostalgic for a childhood that wasn’t mine!

Thank you for a lovely story which made me laugh and cry! I could identify with so much of the narrative, not from the perspective of an émigré but as someone who grew up as a pony mad child in the fifties. Thank you for donating to the welfare of our beautiful “Dunster’s” too!

Review on author website

Loved this book. The author insightfully articulates the path that takes us from childhood dreams to adult reality. A keen sense of humor keeps this intimate journey feeling like an adventure we want to join. Even though I’ve lived my life on only one continent, the book resonated deeply. Seriously. Loved. This. Book.
