CLOSE- UP

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Profile -

Big break: Es­cape from an un­happy mar­riage. Favourite au­thors: Self- an­a­lyt­i­cal women writ­ers such as Jean Rhys, Doris Less­ing and Lil­lian Hellman and, of course, na­ture writ­ers, peo­ple such as Tim Low and Tom Grif­fiths. Ca­reer high­lights: The birth of each book. Favourite bird: A male pere­grine fal­con; so dig­ni­fied, it’s the per­fect preda­tor. Guilty plea­sure: As a firm be­liever in the need for wise use of wa­ter, re­lax­ing in a hot bath with a book.
