About Me

Twenty-four years ago this year Richard and I, with our then dog, 14 year old Holly, in a trailer attached to Richard’s bike, got on our bikes and cycled down through western France via the canal paths, arriving in Antibes in July. And we’re still in France! We spent eleven fabulous years down on the Côte d’Azur, meeting some wonderful people and enjoying the relaxed lifestyle of the Mediterranean.

Then, thirteen years ago we uprooted ourselves again and moved to a quirky cottage in central Brittany. We now have a rescue dog called Django who is a six year old Border Collie / Australian sheepdog, two outdoor cats, Missy the tortoiseshell cat and Little Tabby, a few chickens and about a hundred fish in a large pond that Richard built.

When I’m not writing I love reading, walking in the beautiful countryside and having friends for lunches that follow the French tradition of lasting all afternoon.

I am a member of the Romantic Novelists’ Association and also the Society of Authors.

I have contributed short stories and serials to many of the UK women's magazines including, The People's Friend, Candis, My Weekly, Best, Yours and my stories have been published in Australia, Sweden, South Africa and Ireland.

I also write magazine features and my work has been published in national magazines and newspapers like, The Sunday Times, The Sunday Telegraph, Daily Mail, Daily Telegraph, Home and Country, Devon Life. For over three years I had my own newspaper column in the South Hams Group of Newspapers, that took a wry look at family life.
