I am a freelance writer living in Hobart. I taught in universities and trained in psychotherapy in the UK, leading to my first book Never Marry a Girl With a Dead Father. My recent work includes The School of Life website, Food As Therapy, and For the Love of Food. I've also published a memoir of family life, A Slow Childhood. My current project, Housekeeping, is about the value of domestic life.
