Much ado about … me

I was born in Devon and raised in Bristol, although I now live mainly in Oxfordshire where besides writing I like to go on long walks (even in winter). I’ve just achieved the ‘Walk 1,000 miles 2021’ medal … It’s not gold!

I eat far too much (my husband is a fantastic cook) and so I am forever going on a diet.

I believe we authors are a funny lot. We store experiences for half a lifetime and then, somewhere out of the depths of our consciousness we give them birth without even realising that they have been buried all along.

My books are about the relationships that define the lives of ordinary people. For me my characters become living, breathing people who talk to me, often at night when I wish they wouldn’t because I have to get up and make notes about what they are saying.
