Ashford, Middlesex England
I live in Middlesex with my hugely encouraging husband and two children.
I wrote my first novel at the age of twelve. I discovered the fantasy genre in my late teens and have never looked back. Giving up work to raise a family gave me the impetus to take my attempts at novel writing beyond the first draft, and I'm lucky enough to have a husband who supports my dream - even if he does occasionally hint that I should get a proper job.
I love gardening and have a Hebe (shrub) fetish. I enjoy cooking with ingredients from the garden, and regularly feed unsuspecting guests vegetable-based cakes.
I collect books, love going for walks and picnics with the children and sharing with them my love of nature and photography.
I'm interested in history and enjoy wandering around castles. But most of all I like escaping with a great film, or soaking in a hot bubble bath with an ice cream and a book.
