I spent my childhood in a small market town in Nottinghamshire, reading, roller-booting, baking disastrous cakes and spending hours on the phone to my best friend, despite us living a ten second’s walk from each other.
After studying Biochemistry at university, I worked in cancer research, then balanced teaching antenatal classes with raising my young family. It was fantastic job, but after 10 years of talking about childbirth and nappies, it was time to move on.
So, I decided to embark on a new adventure. By the time I’d tapped out the first chapter I had fallen in love with writing, and suddenly all those hours spent daydreaming made sense.
I live in a village on the outskirts of Robin Hood country, where most mornings you can find me walking with my cocker spaniel, Murphy, while working on my plots. I also have the privilege of being a foster carer to teenage girls. Some of my favourite things include cooking, dancing, my children coming home for Christmas and a fancy leaf tea in my favourite mug.
Having overcome childhood selective mutism, one of the things I love about my job is getting invited to speak or lead seminars and workshops at all sorts of different groups, conferences and events.
