About Me

I was born in Liverpool in 1950, my earliest memory is of moving to the West Riding of Yorkshire in 1953. My family travelled by train, few people had cars in those days. I attended Sandal Endowed Junior School and Wakefield Girls' High School, leaving in 1967 with a handful of 'O' levels, perhaps notably including English Language and Literature. I married in 1982 and have a son and a daughter and four grandchildren. My career is best described as that of a serial assistant to the medical profession, having assisted doctors, pathologists, vets, dentists and pharmacists. All of which has been very interesting and very badly paid.

I am a busy retired person, and although I would like to spend part of each day writing, that doesn't always happen. My hobbies include motorhoming, reading, cooking, walking and gardening. I have a share in an allotment, growing vegetables with limited success.

I have written several short stories, 'The Threlfalls' is my first novel. It is available as a paper back and eBook from Bluewoodpublishing.com, Amazon, Smashwords and other literary websites. The Threlfalls can also be ordered from bookstores.

My second novel is a contemporary work, entitled 'Never Ask Why,'and was released in 2013. I have written two sequels to The Threlfalls, making it a trilogy. 'Dancing Upstairs,' was released in December 2014, and 'Turn the Stones' will be available in 2015. I am currently writing a work of faction, that is to say, fiction based on fact.
