A writer of sorts
After topping up my Psychology and Literature degrees with a post-graduate qualification in Marketing and Communications I paid my dues in advertising as a copywriter and creative director. While working for the top three creative agencies and winning some local and international awards for creativity, I met my husband and business partner, and we co-founded our own agency, which has grown into a reputable communications agencies in the region.
4 AM author
I wake up with the birds at about 4 AM every day, sometimes earlier in the Summer months to work on my first love -- writing fiction. My first book has taken nearly five years to write and thankfully I'm in the final stretch of edits with my amazing editor.
Soon to be published

FOUND AND LOST is the start of many riveting and thought-provoking adventures as Lucy embarks on her journey as a bodhisattva whose destiny it is to right the wrongs of the world and ease the suffering of many.
Found and Lost
Found and Lost is an explosive, devastating, entertaining, and often hilarious adventure story about Lucy Lewis, daughter of a prominent billionaire. Lucy was just a baby when she was swallowed up by the devastating Great Earthquake of China and believed to be dead. Meanwhile, the baby Lucy was found and cared for by a renowned 120-year-old Monk and Scientist who had been meditating in a cave around the time of the Earthquake. Lucy and the Monk live together in the cave for 13-years, during which time Lucy learns many mystical Eastern practices.
Only the first few chapters speak to Lucy’s backstory and time trapped in the cave.
When a construction team discovers Lucy, she is taken back into civilization by an irreverent, deeply flawed African-American explosive-specialist, called Six Nine, who was given his moniker because of his size. During Lucy’s riveting adventure, Six rescues her several times from physical danger. Lucy rescues Six spiritually.
Readers will experience Lucy’s unique point of view as she discovers the modern world above ground through innocent eyes. Lucy has to make sense of a world centered around greed, power, and over-consumption, where money, fame, and material possessions are revered above all else. Lucy has to fight, hide, and run to stay alive, all while keeping her two new-found “friends” safe. Lucy quickly discovers her inner-strength or “Siddhis” (powers acquired as a result of long-term meditation practice).
When international leaders and underground organizations discover Lucy’s status and unique powers, she becomes wanted and hunted. To survive and hold onto her freedom, Lucy, Six and their two peculiar accomplices (an Ape called Franny and a Baby) go on a high-octane adventure journey to get themselves lost again.
