I grew up in Australia, but like many Ausies, I wanted to explore the world. After two years travelling around my birth country, I bought a one-way ticket in India and didn’t return to Australia for six years.
From India I journeyed by sea across to East Africa which gave me the inspiration for a second novel. The story’s about an Ismaili girl growing up in Dar es Salaam who escapes from her dark past, only to find it catches up with her in Canada.
I only spent a couple of weeks in Uganda, but after I left, I kept hearing stories about the country. This eventually gave me inspiration for my third novel that I’m in the midst of writing.
I now call Canada home.
