I write historical novels set in New Zealand, starting in the 1880s. I’m currently working on my sixth book, this one covering the years from 1918 to 1923. I’m fascinated by social history, particularly that of my own country. I was born in New Zealand, and apart from two years in England have lived here all my life. I’m married to my childhood sweetheart, who grew up in the farming valley that’s the inspiration for my imaginary one. We have a few acres in the countryside, where we have an orchard and a large vegetable garden, and a small flock of sheep to keep the grass down. We make our own wine, cider, jams, jellies and sauces.
