Di Morrissey wanted to write books from age seven. She worked as a journalist and broadcaster before publishing her first book. Landscape is the inspiration for her novels and she lives in each place where a book is set. She writes of relationships, intrigue and family issues, weaving in the history, the environment, cultural, social and political issues of each place. Di has established and supports a primary school in Myanmar. She also writes and publishes a monthly newspaper, The Manning Community News.
