Sylvia Crook


My name is Sylvia Crook and I'm incredibly happily married to Martin. We have enjoyed a 28 year love affair and I'm the mother of four children, I've spent much of my life bringing up our two girls and two boys as a full time mother. Once they all became reasonably self sufficient (I know, they never are!) I wrote a children's story which I was in the process of trying to get published when I developed thyroid cancer in 2001. After my recovery I decided a fresh start was needed so I embarked upon a City & Guilds floristry course at the age of 47. I went on to open a florist shop specialising in weddings, with a business partner, which was enjoyable and rewarding but I always wanted to return to my first love; writing. After losing my mother I decided it was time to take time out and fell back into writing as a form of solace. 'Attached' was inspired after spending a night in The Bailhouse; a boutique hotel in the historic city of Lincoln. I hope you enjoy my story.
