Life's too short and far too precious to waste. Live BIG!

Background Information

I was brought up in New Zealand and Australia.

Aged 16, I stowed away fromNZ to the USA on the US Coast Guard Icebreaker Polar Star. On my return to NZ I became pregnant, and got a job as New Zealand's first teenaged pregnant G-string wearing fire-eating stripper.

When my belly got too big to eat fire in a G string, I moved to the street outside the club and became a prostitute.

Aged 20, following a suicide attempt, I turned my life around and went back to High School. From there I enrolled in medical school, and am now a medical doctor and writer.

I was inspired to write as a way of sorting out my life and making certain I broke negative patterns of behaviour.

I still live in New Zealand, where I divide my time between my medical practice and motivational speaking / writing tours. For more information on my life, read my international best selling books 'Bent Not Broken' and 'Life On The Line'.

Birth Place
Wellington,  New Zealand

Mother of two sons.

Additional Information

My first book, Part 1 of my autobiography 'Bent Not Broken' (ISBN 1-877228-33-8, Pub. Steele Roberts, Wgtn, NZ 2000)was fourth-equal New Zealand best-seller in 2000. Part 2 - 'Life On The Line' spent two months at number 2 in the NZ Bestseller list. Zymurgy Publishing in the UK has released a British version of 'Bent'. "Bent' has been released in a German translation as 'ShattenLicht'. The German publisher is MANA verlag. This is soon to be followed by a Chinese language edition.
