About me

Welcome to my world

I started my career living in London armed with a Business Studies degree and ended up working in Marketing in various diverse sectors but mainly financial companies. Highlights included Friends Reunited (remember them?) and my favourite job of all: The Caravan Club.

After that I ran my own social events business for five years and by then I had started creative writing as a hobby and was lucky enough to fall in with a group of writers. I decided to follow my heart and focus on writing women’s fiction – something I really love.

My books are very much a light-hearted, easy read. I choose story lines which I hope resonate with my readers, make them laugh occasionally and leave them feeling good about life.

I got married late in life, with cries of ‘about time too’ around me. I suppose getting married and having kids was never one of my ambitions. I’ve always been a bit different and I’m happy about that.

My main characters have always lived a little and experienced the ups and downs of life much like myself. Of the novels that are published to date, there is one exception to the rule, The Disenchanted Hero, which I wrote when having delved back into my husband’s family history, I realised that there was an interesting tale to tell.

My latest novel, The Long Marriage, is based on a Suffolk village remarkably like the area I live in. It will be published this Summer and available for pre-order at a discounted rate soon.
