After earning degrees from Oxford University (UK) and Birkbeck College, I gained a Phd in Literature at Newcastle University and joined the faculty of the English Department in the University of Greenwich London. Eventually I became a full professor of English and Jungian Studies. In 2009, I emigrated to the United States, where I now teach on hybrid programs in Engaged Humanities, Creativity and Jungian & Archetypal Studies at Pacifica Graduate Institute in California.
In ten books, I have written about the psychology of the creative imagination, using Jung to excavate a lost feminine. I have always been fascinated by detective fiction, in which I am now actively engaged with my Mary Wandwalker Mysteries.
