I was born at Eastchurch and have lived on the Isle of Sheppey in the south east of England for most of my life. I am married with 3 grown up children with six beautiful grandchildren with another one on the way.
All my life, my family have wanted me to make use of the talent I have for painting and writing but I never felt I was good enough. I enjoyed my life working in a local supermarket and felt I was just an ordinary mum, but in 2011 my perfect world came crashing down when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. It was a terrible shock to me because the tumour came up almost overnight. I had to have a mastectomy, chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
I have a wonderful husband and family who supported me throughout. During my gruelling treatment I became very depressed and like most people I thought I would probably die. My husband encouraged me to finish this book which I had begun several years earlier and it really helped me to focus on something other than my illness. I find it very hard to talk about myself or have faith in my own ability, but I decided, that if I survived, I would try and fulfil my potential and believe in myself. I have now published "Pagan Princess" and the next book in the Saga is almost complete and will be published on line in the next few months.
I would like others who have suffered an illness or cancer to know that something good can come from such a terrible experience. Far from seeing this as being a death sentence, I now feel it spurred me on to achieve great things that I did not think could ever become possible.
It has been a year since I finished the treatment and so far things are looking good. I also wanted to really make a difference for others who will have breast cancer and therefore 30 pence from every sale of the book will go to the UK charity Breast Cancer Care.
