Penny grew up mainly in Perth and she had a very isolated and unusual childhood. Her early life was spent travelling and residing in many countries and locations across Australia, Singapore and England. After marriage and raising a family, she worked as a public servant with the Commonwealth Government in health management. The writing of her book took her around the world – twice – and involved many journeys through Singapore, Malaysia, Europe and Russia. Penny now lives in Canberra with her husband. Together, they travel regularly to Sydney, Adelaide, Perth and France to visit their 4 sons and daughters-in-law and 9 grandchildren. Penny’s interests include writing, walking, cycling, history and current affairs.
