My earliest memory of writing was in filling up pages and pages in an exercise book, with no punctuation, poor spelling and illegible handwriting – but it was so exciting, to get what existed only inside my head onto paper.
I’ve done a variety of jobs in my life, and lived in many places. I’ve been a stay-at-home mum to four children. I have qualifications in a few complimentary therapies and have been on both a yoga journey and a spiritual quest since 1990. Since I was young I’ve been interested in health, cooking, nature and gardening – these things feed into my writing, as do the complexities of human emotion and interaction. I completed a degree in Creative Writing with English Literature in 2012 to make me a more considered writer with some purpose. I’ve written prolifically ever since. I’ve just completed my MA year at University of Kent. The goal is the same as ever – to write because it’s vital to my well being.
