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. If you’d like some more info on my published books and what I’m working on, you’ll find it under the ‘books’ on the menu, or by clicking the links in this sentence!
