☠ Bio ☠
I always enjoyed writing, but juggling a family and career left little time for anything else. It was only when life slowed down that I truly discovered my creative streak. Actually, it was during a period of illness. I found it so therapeutic to be able to ‘escape’ inside my head and it was then that I got really hooked. Suddenly I discovered how much was stored inside, waiting to be unleashed. We are such complex characters, moulded by our unique life experiences, and once you start to delve inside your head, things from way back that you think are forgotten creep back into your conscious mind. There is no telling what you might find!
My first publication was a children's book, but mostly I write women's fiction with a strong romantic thread. My aim in The Path of Innocence was to write a contemporary romance for women who understand that life is not clear-cut, that love exists in different forms. As well as a romance, it is also a deeply emotional book about the complexity of love and its contradictions.
The inspiration for my writing usually comes from mentally transporting myself to a location with which I feel a strong emotional attachment and I find that most of my ideas spring from this sense of place.
I live with my husband in a pretty village in the Essex countryside, UK, having 'escaped' from London several years ago. Instead of a never-ending sea of rooftops, my view now is one of fields, of horses grazing in a nearby paddock, of woodpeckers, jays and a family of pheasants who visit every day. Actually, the pheasants roost in hedging at the bottom of my garden and, together with rabbits, they progressively eat their way through my vegetable patch! More cunning tactics are clearly required this year to ensure some produce reaches our table, whilst still nurturing the beautiful wildlife.
We are empty-nesters apart from an adorable, but incurably mischievous Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.
