The Love Authentic is an ongoing sensory exploration of this life and of how living in this world with my senses switched on and engaged – internally and externally – creates the world I see.
We are all energy creating more energy – I open myself to explore and understand the currents of my most authentic self.
As for me, by training I’m a Journalist, Private Investigator, Fashion Designer, Chef and Writer, by nature a curious hippie and by practice a human being.
I currently live in Melbourne, Australia where I write fashion professionally for others and am working on my first crime/love literary fiction novel.
Thanks for exploring with me.

I grew up on the Coromandel Coast, at the top end of the east coast of the North Island of New Zealand. A 100% pure Kiwi kid. I am Ngati Porou, Ngati Maru and Irish by descent. My childhood instilled within me a forever restlessness,curiousity and a never ending love of oysters.
Coromandel has some of the world’s best sea life and beaches.
I spent my childhood a 100% pure, New Zealand kid, leaping off swing bridges in the Kauaeranga Valley, pig hunting well by association- my teenage sweetheart was a pig hunter, motivated by love I ventured on one pig hunt, at the time I was a vegetarian.
Today part of me yearns for my childhood of boulder hopping down streams littered with abandoned gold-mine shafts and running to dinner with grass stains from ‘playing outside’ to homes filled with homegrown veges, farm killed beasts, wild honey comb and home cooked meals.
‘Writing inspired today, playing fashion sleuth in South Molton street London – I loved moving in London’s mass of humanity – needing to be somewhere or as in this moment, me needing to be nowhere at all.’

But here’s the magic – as writers we create and satisfy those yearnings with story. The gift of story with all it’s restless curiosity.
Check me out here through the landscape of writing with it’s incredible joys and days of not so much.
