Penelope Haines

Author Information
Haines, Penelope

Penelope Haines became a writer when she realized she could gaze out of the window with a glass of wine in her hands and claim to be working. 

Her previous occupations of Nurse, Management Consultant, Parent, Farm Manager, CEO and Commercial Pilot failed to achieve this simple clarity.

Her training as a nurse taught her not to kill patients; her training as a flying instructor convinced her to be patient as students attempted to kill her. Penelope’s current status as ‘alive’ is a testament to the speed of her reactions.
