Roaming the world, heading further east via Germany and Romania, I settled in Japan for several years. Yet, I identify with the pirate wanderlust that curbs any enthusiasm for putting down roots. I'm now living in East Sussex, England, and look set to stay ... But, I still nurture passions for other places - Orkney being my current infatuation. I've worked as an English teacher, model, copywriter, proofreader, magazine editor.
