Biography

 
Following in my father's footsteps, I wanted to be a writer from a very early age.   Once I realised that copying Rupert Bear stories word for word from my annuals wasn't really the thing to do, I was on my way!

By the age of fourteen I had produced my first full length novel - alas! never published - and over the next few years my teenage life was so full that all literary ambitions became somewhat overshadowed.

Married in my early twenties, the needs of the home became my priority.  Despite the ever present nagging little voice in my conscience that constantly reminded me of those unfulfilled writing ambitions, the creativity had stopped.

A few weeks before my thirtieth birthday I was thinking about what I had done with my first thirty years and realised I had been telling myself that "I would start writing tomorrow" for at least twelve of them!   I couldn't help wondering whatever happened to that dream?   Within two weeks my "tomorrow" would come when fate took a hand in the form of redundancy!

Writing was my life.   After several attempts, the letter that was to change my life arrived from Mills & Boon.   They wanted to publish my book!   My dream had come true, and they have continued to publish my books ever since.

Living in England's beautiful West Country, I like nothing better that taking walks with my husband along the coast or in the adjoining woods, and enjoying all that nature has to offer.

Travelling ranks very highly among my pleasures, and so many places I have visited have been recreated in my books.

Of my writing, emotion is paramount.   Times, places and trends change, but emotion is timeless...
