Born out of a need for escapism I create characters and scenarios that I hope will both lift the spirits of my readers and encourage them to follow their own dreams.
I love to write but to pay my bills (I soon discovered that utility companies, bank managers and landlords aren’t known for their generosity and understanding natures,) I had to squeeze it in with working for a living. Some of the jobs to which I only gave half my attention include working for a recording studio and a record label, running a building maintenance company where pretty much the only upside was getting to boss a lot of men about all day, doing a bit of plus size modelling (strictly clothes on) and, for one memorable summer, making a living reading palms on a Greek Island.
Thankfully, I am now able to spend much more of my time engaging in my true passion – writing. I pen columns for a variety of local newspapers and magazines, have won awards for my short stories and I’m very much enjoying blogging. Currently, most exciting of all is the imminent release of my first novel, The Love Detective, on 28th September 2018! I will be attending a number of events to promote The Love Detective as well as participating in a blog tour – click on the links to find out more.
