As a child, I was taught that books were my friends, words were wonderful and stories were what made the world go around.
Not surprisingly, I became an avid reader, and over the years, while also being a waitress, a charity worker, a promoter of environmentally friendly technology, an office manager and a desktop publisher, I’ve spent a lot of time working with words. I got a degree in English literature, I became and still am a storyteller (in the oral tradition), I learnt how to edit, then how to write copy, and finally, I came home to writing novels.
They say you should write what you know, so I write stories about women: about their ups and downs, the men they get mixed up with, the trouble they get into and getting out again with a little help from their friends.
Some of those stories are romances, because I dearly love a happy ending and some of them are not, because in real life, not all stories end that way – although there’s always tomorrow…
When I’m not writing, I’m a wife, a mum, a volunteer, a reader, a storyteller, a blogger, a singer, a cook (who will never be on Master Chef, but is keen), a maker of cocktails, an embryonic practitioner of karate, a frequenter of hammocks and an enthusiastic talker – among other things!
I’m delighted that you’ve taken the trouble to read about me and what I’m up to.
