I am a journalist, author and wine writer and live in Martinborough, a remote rural wine village in the Wairarapa, 90 minutes’ hilly drive from Wellington city. I trained to be a journalist on an old fashioned typewriter at Wellington Polytechnic in 1989.
I have since written about design, gardens, nudist camps, sperm donors and a raft of other weird and wonderful topics for a vast number of news stand magazines as well as written for most of New Zealand’s large daily newspapers.
I am the published author of 15 books about wine and hold the Wine & Spirit Education Trust’s highest qualification, the Level 4 Diploma.
When not writing, tasting wine for work or enjoying it for pleasure, I love music, cooking for friends, travelling and walking in the hills.
My turangawaewae is the South Island of New Zealand.
Like all published authors, I am working on the next book…
Enough about me. If you’d like to get in touch...
