I've been a nomad from the age of six-months, when my parents packed me and our Siamese cat into an old Renault and set off for a remote gold-mining town in Australia's Nullarbor desert. Since then I've circumnavigated the globe many times. As a foreign correspondent, I reported from some of the globe's most intriguing and dangerous places for renowned broadcasters such as the BBC, NPR and the ABC. Later, I began a new journey as a novelist. My latest novel, Scheherazade's Daughters, will be published by Kensington Books in fall 2020.
