Penne grew up in Western Queensland on a sheep and cattle station. Being too far from school she was home-schooled until 10 years old when she went to a boarding school.
Later on in life she got a job as a research assistant in London, but after losing her brother through a traffic accident she felt she needed a change and got a job as a nanny in Austria. After trying this job and deciding it was not for her she went traveling with her friends in Europe Egypt but ended up working for 6 months at Butterfly Valley in Turkey, home to a rare breed of butterfly.
Today Penne lives in the hinterlands of Noosa with her daughter and husband and writes a blog called "The Unsteptepford Wife”.
