Jennifer Barrie Books & Biography
Jennifer Barrie was born in Perth, and still lives there when she is not sailing. She studied classical music at UWA with a view to being the world's greatest flautist. That didn't work. So she studied education and taught music for way too long. Then back to uni for an MBA, and was self employed in the Dictaphone industry for 16 years, which is enough to drive anyone to sea. She lives with her husband Andrew, and their two daughters, Diana and Shannon, in a happy and chaotic home in North Perth.
