I was born in Zambia, raised largely in South Africa after some early years in Britain. I have lived as a foreigner in central Mozambique for 13 years, then for something completely different lived in a 17th century farmhouse where we tried 'living off the land' for a year. I am currently living near an ancient market town in England. In my life I have been an anti-apartheid activist, project manager, development consultant and I have run two play-schools and home-schooled my own children. I am a Christian, mother, daughter, wife, and friend. I have multiple and shifting interests and am so open-minded my brains tend to fall out. Fortunately ultimately my life is made steady by the fact that it's built upon the rock. Jesus is the rock.
