Josephine took the long route to fulfilling her dream of being a writer, writing ten manuscripts in twelve years and stopping off in more jobs than she can count. Her longest careers have been as a teacher (three years) and an editor (four years).
She also founded and ran a horse rescue charity in SE Qld, working nearly full time for three years and for no pay, but a lot of personal reward and a paddock full of retired horses that now eat their way through her spending money. She loves animals and includes in her life’s highlights swimming with humpback whales in Tonga.
Josephine likes to write stories around food (‘foodie fiction’) and thinks of her books as nourishment for the soul. And if she’d known she could claim a high tea as a legitimate research tax deduction, she would have written about food much sooner. Sometimes she prepares great, organic superpower foods and other times she eats toast.
She lives with her husband, son and animals on acreage on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland (Australia), very much enjoying the splendours of sushi, beaches, smoothies, cafes, fresh food markets and festivals.
