I’m the author of two books, The Worst Country in the World and The Unlikely Adventures of Claudia Faraday.
In the past I was an actress, here in the UK where I live and in Australia, where I lived for a time, then a scriptwriter, playscout, lyricist and co-founder of The Children’s Musical Theatre of London, creating devised musicals with primary-school age children.
I live in London and have done so all my life except for a brief spell living in Australia in my twenties. At the moment I’m spending most of my time writing and researching my family history. Book two of the family saga, working title Making Australia, features my great great grandfather, pioneer farmer in remote 19th century New South Wales and founder of the stock and station agent Pitt, Son & Badgery.
I also arrange theatre tours for visitors to London, and I occasionally teach and lecture on British theatre. My theatre website is here: www.londontheatrevisits.com.
I am the mother of two adult kids, I live in north London and I have a Freedom Pass. My one and only hobby is rag rugging.
