I am married with 4 grown up kids, 1 granddaughter, and 2 grandsons. I was born in Surrey, and have lived in Derbyshire since 1980. I love animals and share the house with 3 westie girls Tilly, Daisy, and Holly, budgies and finches, and 2 tanks of tropical fish. I lost 2 westie girls in 2011, Rosie was nearly 17, and 5 months later Lily who was 15 and a half.
I have always enjoyed writing, and particularly enjoyed writing ‘Paddy Stories’ which is in memory of Rosie and Lily, and my two friends' westies Paddy and Alfie . It is a children's book with the adventures of westies living in a magical kingdom. I have three books published - 'Paddy Stories', the second book ‘Paddy Stories – Magic of Christmas’, and the third book ‘Paddy Stories – Easter Parade’, I am now working on 'Paddy Stories - Summer Holiday' which I hope to publish in 2015. I have also been working on a trilogy of romantic novels. Book 1 is complete and I am working on book 2.
Life is full and busy, and my writing is always a joy.
'Paddy Stories' is also available from:
Barnes & Noble
Baker & Taylor Blio
Soon to be available on:
Baker & Taylor 360
