I’m in East Timor, which I hope to use as a base for covering the region.
I recently returned from three years freelancing in Africa, mostly from Ghana.
At the moment I’m working on a book about my time living in a camp for women accused of witchcraft and am putting together a handbook on freelance journalism.
While in Africa, my work appeared in the Washington Times, Newsday, South China Morning Post, Newsweek, Sydney Morning Herald, South China Morning Post, Ottawa Citizen and Toronto Star. Prior to that, I worked for six years at the Toronto Star, most recently as their health reporter.
