About The Speaker...
I am a successful writer living in mid-Devon following a successful career in the criminal justice sector. Four years ago my husband and I returned to live in UK following 10 years living in Australia; 5 years in Cairns, Far North Queensland, followed by 5 years in Canberra, the nation’s capital.
I possess many years of successful public speaking experience, delivering from small audiences to those of up to 500 delegates.
Although I have written novels, recently I have been concentrating on writing short story fiction and am regularly published in leading women’s magazines.
About Their Talks...
My talks centre around my five years’ working at Lanyon; a historic Australian settlers’ homestead situated in the rural landscape around Canberra.
Those five years have provided not only an in-depth of knowledge of the homestead’s history and residents, human and animal; but also a wealth of humorous and exciting anecdotes.
Although primarily employed as a tourist guide, my various roles included temporary housekeeper and wedding arranger.
As a Brit, to wander through outback paddocks with a set of keys to unlock convict-labour built barns while serenaded by vivid birdlife and mindful of not-so friendly local wildlife, was a memorable and tremendous privilage.
All talks are accompanied by colourful and interesting Powerpoint slides.
£75 per talk plus travel expenses for face-to-face delivery. (Preferred)
