I spent far too many years in the rat race, commuting to London and working in various senior management roles that I managed somehow to bluff my way into. Then I got the opportunity to spend my time doing what I really want to do - to write full time!
My books draw on my varied working career, my background in psychology, and my own personal experiences.
I live in the beautiful countryside of North Essex with my husband and two very nutty Irish Setters. Dogs and dog walking is another passion of mine, and walking gives me the thinking time to come up with plots. I'll often be seen dictating ideas onto my phone, casting an eye behind me to make sure no one's listening.
My No 1 fan is my gay son (every mother should have one!). My favourite pastime is on the rare occasions he's home, spending a late night chatting session where no subject is taboo and usually accompanied by a bottle of wine. Or two
Dogs, dog showing, reading reading and reading, horses and, of course, writing.
