Beijing, the capital of a bustling, historical society. A place where modern and traditional life are juxtaposed. I hope this photo book will inspire you to go and explore this land of wonder for yourself.
As a music and English teacher, I’ve always loved hearing stories, reading stories and now writing stories. I was inspired to write by my mother, who also writers, and by my excursions overseas. I was born in Auckland, New Zealand. Lived in the city until I was nine, when I moved away from every thing I’d known, to live in a small town called Paeroa. It was there that I grew to love the countryside, the pot belly fire place, my ‘Anne of Green Gables’ home. My mother home schooled my three brothers, sister and I until high school, which made us a close knit family. After graduating from Waikato University, we had all moved over to live in the suburbs of Hamilton. Soon after I got married and moved to South Korea. It’s been a long time coming, but I’m on my new adventure of writing and self publishing books. My husband, Saveth, and I now are back in NZ and raising our son, Ezra. Saveth has been exceptionally supportive and Ezra has been a big inspiration for my writing.
