I was born in Cheshire in 1972. At primary school, I discovered two things that would eventually lead to me becoming the person I am today. The first wasn't actually at school, it was at home, when my big sister dressed me up in her nurses uniform. She was three years older than me and I have no idea what her intention was, but it planted in a seed in my soul that has grown and blossomed ever since.
The second thing did happen in school. I had a teddy bear called Albert that my cousin had given me. I loved that bear and, when we were given the task of writing a story in class, I made the story about him. Albert was a superhero and my story filled three exercise books. I discovered that I loved writing. Before I left primary school I remember writing a second story, a Sherlock Holmes sort of thing where twins deceived the Police to commit a murder.
During my early teens I dressed as often as I could, usually borrowing my sister's clothes. At the age of fifteen, my parents caught me. They were mad and I was asked if they needed to take me to a shrink or was it just a stupid phase. Given that choice, I lied and said it was a phase. I carried on dressing afterwards, I was just a little more careful.
My writing continued, I had some bad times in my twenties when I nearly died from a rare illness which affects me to this day, and I began writing dark poetry, much of which was presented on a website called Dark Thoughts. One piece was published in a book called Poetry by Moonlight. My first taste of publication.
Despite my health I tried to lead a normal life but as I have become worse I became limited with what I could do and when I fell off a ladder and broke my back it was the final straw, so now I spend most of my time writing, although I am trying to do some voice-over work. We'll see where that goes.
For now, I am continuing to work on the Angels books with a few romances thrown in for good measure.
