Val Sheppard had never written a poem or even a shopping list prior to her debut novel Is Anyone Listening?
The youngest daughter in a family of eight children, Val was raised in Wiltshire, the county struggling for recognition between the glorious Cotswolds and the cheeriness of Somerset.
Married for twenty-five years to Dave and proud to be a grandmother of five and beloved auntie to so many that she has stopped counting. Val works full-time as a PA, enjoys racquet sports, swimming and watching ice hockey in her spare time. She loves to be in a warm climate so is thankful to have friends who live in the Canary Islands.
