About the Author:

Penelope came to New Zealand as an eleven-year-old after a childhood spent in India and Pakistan. As an only child, reading was her hobby – she read everything that came her way, a habit which has continued throughout her life. On leaving school she trained as a nurse, without fully considering that a brisk default attitude of ‘pull yourself together and stop whining’ might not be an ideal prerequisite for the industry. Conceding, at last, that nurturing was not her dominant characteristic, she changed career path and after graduating with a BA (Hons) in English Literature, moved into management consultancy, which better suited her personality type. After some years of family life she worked as a commercial pilot and flight instructor, spending her days ferrying clients into strips in the Marlborough Sounds and discouraging students from killing her as she taught them to fly. Currently she operates a company providing rehabilitative care for accident victims. Penelope lives with her husband, dog, cat and horse in Otaki, New Zealand. 'Princess of Sparta', originally published as 'Helen Had a Sister' is Penelope's second novel. Death on D’Urville is her third novel. Straight and Level, the second in the Claire Hardcastle series, is due out in December 2017. Her debut novel, The Lost One is also available as an e-Books through Amazon.com. All Penelope's novels are available as paperbacks from Amazon.com
