Thank you for visiting my blog! I’m the author of “Mystical Circles” (romantic suspense fiction) and am currently working on my new novel. I post on my blog weekly. I love to have your comments so please keep them coming!
As a child I was inspired by Enid Blyton. I started writing adventure stories at the age ofseven; the love of writing that her stories first instilled into me has strengthened over the years. In conferences and workshops I always have my notebook and pen handy, so I can write down the names of everyone attending, and whatever details they share about themselves.
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 writing Mystical Circles. I’ve always been fascinated by the interaction of different personalities, and enjoy observing people and their foibles.
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,(Click to Tweet) and hold out for what you first dreamed of.
