About the Author

Chris Davies Curtis was born in Yorkshire England, and spent her school years in Stratford-upon-Avon with her parents and elder brother David. She then trained to be a registered nurse, meeting her future husband on a pony trekking holiday. Four years after marrying Londoner, Ken they moved to the British Channel Isle of Sark. After about seven years of running a guest house and smallholding they decided to explore New Zealand in a Bedford van for two years, taking young son Roy with them. Various jobs paid the way, and they returned to Sark to lease their property and emigrate back to New Zealand. Here Chris became a rural District Nurse. Sadly the marriage ended and Chris returned to Sark, where she lived with a partner for 17 years, until he died of a brain tumour. She now lives north of Auckland, near her son and family. Writing has always been a hobby (her father was a short story writer), and she has now published four 'memoirs' about her eventful life. Now she is writing Medical Romances, using some of her own experiences. They are proving popular in the UK. Several are 'in the pipeline.'
