I'm known as an author, a presenter, and a musician. Threads interweave in my life, add colour as they interconnect. Writing is foremost in my mind, but often pushed aside by other calendar events. 
Seeds were sown for my book 'Burn My Letters: Midnight Sun to Southern Cross' when fate brought me to Sweden, opposite  from my grandfather's birthplace in Finland. I gathered information, was gifted parish records and old letters by my Finnish family - a treasure trove dating back to the 1500s. 

Narrative nonfiction morphs into memoir as I trace my discoveries, sifting truths from myths. I pitched this MS at 2013 Byron Bay Writers' Festival and since filmed it.

'Burn My Letters' would interest ancestry.com addicts, baby boomers -- all who search their heritage. This book is wide open for translation to Swedish, Finnish and German to take it around the globe.
