I disliked school, which I regret, but I found history,geography and English interesting, although I had difficulty writing stories and poems. My passion has always been sport, becoming a Midland champion in two swimming strokes; then I discovered fencing, which gave me the opportunity to travel abroad representing Great Britain until illness prevented me from realizing my dream. I didn't start writing until I was in my fifties, and it's always been the historical stories which have interested me. My research is thorough, cross-checking through diaries and letters, not just the internet, consequently, writing is slow.
I live in the West Midlands and am a companion to four cats - I think!

But what she finds there is far beyond what her genteel sensibilities could imagine.
