I began my working life as an actress here in the UK and in Australia, where I lived for a time way back as a Ten Pound Pom. I’ve been a scriptwriter for TV, radio and theatre, a script editor, playscout, lyricist and co-founder of The Children’s Musical Theatre of London, creating devised musicals with primary-school age children.
I have recently finished writing the follow-up to Worst Country featuring my great great grandfather G M Pitt, founder of the Australian stock and station agent Pitt, Son & Badgery. The as yet untitled book is due for publication some time in 2018.
I also arrange theatre tours for visitors to London, and I teach and lecture part-time on British theatre. My theatre website is here: www.londontheatrevisits.com.
I am the mother of two adult offspring, I live in north London and I have a Freedom Pass. My one and only hobby is rag rugging.
