I was born in Dunedin, New Zealand. My fathers medical career took us overseas when I was five, and I went to school in London for a year before moving to Washington, D.C. Eventually we returned to Dunedin, where I finished school and then trained as a primary school teacher.After I married my husband, who works as a doctor, we moved to Christchurch where I worked for a time as a research technician in a hospital and indulged my academic interests by taking University courses in early European history and philosophy. This was followed by another move - to Glasgow, for two years. This provided me with the perfect opportunity to pen my first novel - a medical thriller with a good dash of romance!Our return to New Zealand began a new chapter in my life, with my creative efforts being channelled into entertaining a baby daughter, renovating a very old farmhouse with an enormous garden and caring for a menagerie of donkeys, sheep, hens, dogs and cats which I happily began to collect.My writing led to a new passion in life when I went to research the ambulance service and fell in love with the job. I became a qualified paramedic and spent many hours on the road. I also spent many hours as a pony club mother as my talented daughter became an awesome eventer and broke in her own yearling who lived with us on another country property that became home after my marriage ended. The massive earthquake in Christchurch in 2011 was life changing for many of us and I’m currently embracing a new lifestyle in Auckland. Writing continues to be my touchstone passion and I’ve added a non-fiction element as part of my new part-time job as a clinical educator in the department of Paramedicine and Emergency Management at an Auckland university.My brilliant daughter, Becky, is now an amazing young sculptor who lives in Melbourne. Apart from my writing, family and friends the other passions in my life are dancing (Ceroc – so much fun!) and learning French. My dream is to spend a year or two in France in the not too distant future so that I can get really fluent. It should be great research for new stories as well :-)...

River Line

by none

Category: Dentistry

charles Langbridge Morgan (22 January 1894 – 6 February 1958), was an English-born playwright and novelist of English and Welsh parentage. The main themes of his work were, as he himself put it, Art, Love, and Death[1], and the relation between them. Themes of individual novels range from the paradoxes of freedom (The Voyage, The River Line), through passionate love seen from within (Portrait in a Mirror) and without (A Breeze of Morning), to the conflict of good and evil (The Judges Story) and the enchanted boundary of death (Sparkenbroke).Life and writingsEarly lifeHis maternal grandparents had emigrated to Australia from Pembrokeshire. His paternal grandparents were from Gloucestershire and Devon in England. His parents were married in Australia. His father, Sir Charles Langbridge Morgan was a railway civil engineer, and at one time was President of the Institution of Civil Engineers. Morgan himself was born in Bromley, Kent. He was educated at the Naval Colleges of Osborne and Dartmouth and served as a midshipman in the China Fleet until 1913, when he returned to England to take the entrance examinations for Oxford. On the outbreak of war he rejoined the navy but was sent with Churchills Naval Division to the defence of Antwerp. He was interned in Holland which provided the setting for his best-selling novel The Fountain.Some of his early poems were published in the Westminster Gazette. To America (1917) was included in A Treasury of World Poetry, edited by George Herbert Clarke. After World War I, he took his degree at Brasenose College, Oxford.Family relationships; journalism and dramaAfter an unsuccessful relationship with Mary, a daughter of Alfred Mond, 1st Baron Melchett, he married the Welsh novelist Hilda Vaughan in 1923. They had two children: Dame Shirley Paget, Marchioness of Anglesey, and Roger Morgan, who became Librarian of the House of Lords. He was the drama critic of The Times from the 1920s until 1938, and contributed weekly articles on the London theatre to the New York Times. He wrote a series of articles for the Times Literary Supplement under the byline Menanders Mirror from 1942, and many articles for the Sunday Times.His first play, The Flashing Stream (1938), had successful runs in London and Paris but was not well received in New York. The River Line (1952) was originally written as a novel in 1949 and concerned the activities of escaped British prisoners of war in France during World War II.Honours and reputationHe was awarded the French Legion of Honour in 1936, a promotion in 1945, and was elected a member of the Institut de France in 1949. From 1953 he was the president of International PEN.While Morgan enjoyed an immense reputation during his lifetime and was awarded the 1940 James Tait Black Memorial Prize for fiction, he was sometimes criticised for excessive seriousness, and for some time rather neglected; he once claimed that the sense of humour by which we are ruled avoids emotion and vision and grandeur of spirit as a weevil avoids the sun. It has banished tragedy from our theatre, eloquence from our debates, glory from our years of peace, splendour from our wars... The character Gerard Challis in Stella Gibbonss Westwood is thought to be a caricature of him. His posthumous reputation was initially higher in France than in Britain [2], but has begun a new rise in recent years with the republication of various novels (including Capuchin Classics The Voyage with an Introduction by Oxfords Valentine Cunningham in 2009), his poetry (edited by Peter Holland for Scarthin Books in 2008) and the forthcoming re-edition of his plays, planned by Oberon Books for 2012. He was a consummate and committed stylist, from newspaper reviews to major novels a passionate craftsman of English prose.Major worksNovels The Gunroom (1919) My Name is Legion (1925) Portrait in a Mirror (1929) The Fountain (1932) Sparkenbroke (1936) T...
