I was born and brought up in south east London. As a child I was inspired by Enid Blyton. I started writing adventure stories at the age of seven; the love of writing that her stories first instilled into me has strengthened over the years.
I studied English Literature at Lancaster University, and my first permanent job was as a production secretary with the BBC. Later I lived for nearly five years in Australia. Upon my return to England, I met my future husband David.Subsequently we married and then moved to Warwickshire, where we now live with our two teenage children.
I completed two comic novels before turning to romantic suspense with "Mystical Circles". I’ve always been fascinated by the interaction of different personalities, and by human relationships. I am now nearing completion on another romantic suspense novel "A Passionate Spirit".
And my advice to anyone who wants to be a writer? Read a lot, listen to people’s conversations, closely observe every aspect of their personalities, be fascinated by human behaviour and interaction in groups, and be persistent,stubborn, single-minded to the point of obsession…never give up, always believe in yourself despite all evidence to the contrary, and hold out for what you first dreamed of.
