Hilary Beavis

Biography

I am a single lady, loyal, trustworthy, very reliable and a traditionalist by nature. I am an only child with a quiet and reserved disposition. I am organised and conscientious. Currently, I have pt-time hours one day a week as a Receptionist at a local Medical Centre. I have family and friends in the North Island of New Zealand who I have visited several times and only wish the world could be 'squashed' to reduce the travelling time! I enjoy going to classical music concerts and also theatre productions both locally and in the West End of London. I try to keep active by going to the gym at least once a week, more when time permits. In July 2017 I published my second book, Folkington, East Sussex - a Village History.

Smashwords Interview

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Time Management is always a problem for me. I try to divide what I have available each day three ways - some essential household chores, voluntary duties supporting learners to improve their English either coming to a Speaking English with Confidence Club session or at a local College, and to chill out in the evenings watching TV.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
I do remember the story I read first. I was only three or four at the time and was fortunate to have someone read to me regularly. My favourite stories were always about animals - farm animals especially.
