My Biography

Find me on Facebook!
     I am a wife, a mother to one daughter and grandmother to a three year old little girl. I count myself lucky to live in a beautiful part of Gloucestershire in England. I have always been a reader of fiction,  starting in my teens with the likes of Dennis Wheatley, Isaac Asimov and Ray Bradbury. In later years my appetite stretched to include Daphne Du Maurier, Phillippa Gregory and Diana Gabaldon.  Then I discovered Fantasy Romance and was completely hooked. In 2010 I started writing my first novel whilst employed in a local primary school in Gloucestershire as a Teaching Assistant. Out of the blue the board of governors announced that a number of staff cuts were necessary in an attempt to cut costs. It was a complete bombshell to all the Teaching  Assistants as it was their positions that were at risk. I was the longest serving employee at the time with twenty five years service and once the initial shock had been absorbed I thought, ‘Why not?’  I was the only one to volunteer for redundancy. Unfortunately three other T/A’s  lost their jobs too.

     Within a few months I had finished my debut novel and self published it. To date I have a total of four novels and one book of short stories all available as ebooks through Amazon.  Two are also available as traditional books and two of the ebooks have also been combined as one paperback.

      I am currently working on another novel as yet untitled together with formatting two short stories to be included in different anthologies with the proceeds going to Charities.
