Hello my name is
My dream was always to write for a living. I completed my first novel when I was in my twenties and received the first of many very nice rejections. Life then got in the way, until circumstances made me re-evaluate my life and pick up my dream again in 2010.
I joined a creative writing class, The Write Place, in 2012. Shortly afterwards, my first short story was published and I was thrilled when many more followed. I finally started to believe in myself.
My hard work and perseverance has paid off. I am thrilled to say I have signed a three book contract with Aria Publishing, which is the digital arm of Head of Zeus. All three books will be world war one sagas, set around Foyles Bookstore.
As a member of the Romantic Novelists’ Association and The Society of Women Writers & Journalists, I attend many conferences, workshops, seminars and wonderful parties. Meeting other writers gives me encouragement, finding that most face similar problems.
My patient husband, Dave, and I have five children who have flown the nest. Home is in Dartford, Kent and is always busy with our children, grandchildren, grand dogs and cats visiting. Without my wonderful family, I know the dream would never have been realised.
