I grew up in the mid-60s in a small village situated in the depths of the beautiful, picturesque Oxfordshire countryside. As a child, it wasn’t at all unusual to catch me gazing out of a window daydreaming or to find me busily creating stories or making up songs. Writing and music are very much in my soul!
I had an amazing childhood growing up in such glorious surroundings and relished exploring every aspect of village life with my friends. Long, hot summers were spent down by the river or walking through green, leafy lanes that lead onto one of the two Brookes that can be found in the village. We’d share a picnic and sit on the grassy bank, swishing our bare feet in the clear, cool water. In later years, when I took my own children to all these favoured spots, I’d sit daydreaming, conjuring up some of the stories that I’ve woven into the Hamptons series whilst they played happily nearby.
I enjoyed a successful career working for several financial and pharmaceutical institutions based in London and the Home Counties before taking a break to bring up my children. Now that they are adults, I can write down all the stories that have been flowing through my mind all these years – and I so enjoy it too!
My family and I now live in beautiful Cornwall where it feels like every day is a holiday! Soaking up the spectacular scenery or exploring the rugged cliffs and beautiful beaches fill our weekends… and our hearts!
I can often be found somewhere along the coast, losing myself in a book or two or three...
The stories I write are filled with love, life, family and friendships. I hope to be able to tempt you to give them a try for yourself!
