I was born in Port Stanley, Falkland Islands before returning to England with the rest of my family aged three.
I left school after A levels and worked for NatWest bank for almost 20 years. I completed an Open University correspondence degree in Natural Sciences during this time. I then worked as administrator at a nursing home for four years before deciding on a change in life.
I went to New Zealand for nine months completing a Post Graduate Diploma in Resource Studies before returning to eventually find another administrative position, this time with the RSPB at Otmoor in Oxfordshire.
After nearly three years there, I moved to Carnforth in Lancashire to work at the RSPB Leighton Moss nature reserve.
While working here I discovered an interest in writing and after taking a evening course in Creative Writing for a year, my other students and I started the CG Jelly Friskers writing group and I have completed three novels since then.
