                         Novelist!

                                                

 Hiya! I am a writer.

For nearly twenty years, I’ve supported literacy in schools and youth settings. I've also volunteered in church and health settings.

Having always told stories, I took up the challenge of recording them a few years ago, embarking on a Certificate in Creative Writing at Lancaster University. I was a member of Melton’s Writers Club before joining The Reindeer Writers, who now meet in Southwell.

I want to create fiction for youth in a voice that reflects their value systems but adds hope around their issues. After volunteering in a day hospice and child bereavement centre, I’ve written a teen novel covering family bereavement, called, ‘Get Over It.’ It's been published by Onwards and Upwards publishers.

I love long country walks and swimming.  I am busy with a grown up family. Our house has a few cats in! The glorious colours of the seasons, in the countryside inspire me. As do the animals, with swans being one of my favourite birds.

I get many of my ideas when I am free to think, like when I'm on holiday. It's somehow easier to go into a dream place when you are relaxed, surrounded by your family and away from pressures!
