About Me


Fame, fortune, and lots of good stories to tell.


Hullo there! Most people thing me a bit of a strange person, but I think that's a matter of opinion really. I'm pretty much absorbed in writing stories; I enjoy locking myself away and making things up. My books are my beloved brainchildren. I have many cats, I learn poetry off by heart for fun, and I am often to be found haunting my house drinking posh tea and eating pink lamingtons. I dress up daily in gothic kodona or lolita, I adore Japanese fashion.

I cannot stay in one place for long, the call of... somethingerather beckons, and soon I am away on more of my never ending peregrination. Much of my year while I am actually in my home of bonnie New Zealand, is spent living in my van, living a gypsyish lifestyle, and working in orchards. I want to see as much of the world as I can, have heaps of unique experiences, learn a few languages, and meet lots of interesting new people.


I have many philosophies on life but I find the most beneficial thing one can do is always keep a smile on your face :D
