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 whole variety of paid 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. It’s now 2016 and I’m about to embark on my Masters at University of Kent. The goal is the same as ever – to write because it’s vital to my well being.
