I was born in 1939, and grew up in the suburbs of Nottingham, close to the then countryside. I married young and have two sons. This marriage ended after twenty-two years.
I have been happily married to Phil for thirty-six years; he is fourteen years my junior. We live in the beautiful Derbyshire countryside.
I have always been an avid reader. However, over the past few years, I became disenchanted with a number of books and wondered how they became published.
So, I gave myself a challenge. Could I write? If so, what genre? I knew I couldn't do justice to a thriller. ‘Adult' literature seems very popular, so I went with that.
