I spent most of my professional life as a Community Nurse for people with learning disabilities, a Family Planning Nurse, and a Forensic Nurse working with young offenders. I spent six years living in the south of France, and I currently live in Essex with my husband. My eldest daughter is studying veterinary medicine, and my second daughter is studying for a degree in computer science. We board Guide Dogs in training.

I love reading authors such as Anita Brookner, Sylvia Plath, Ian Rankin, Maggie O’Farrell, and PD James, to name but a few. I love Woody Allen films, action and war films. I enjoy cooking but loathe ironing. Dusting comes fairly low down on my list of priorities.

I have a sense of humour, that sometimes shines through, but I also have a dark side which I enjoy displaying in my writing. I’m published by Winter Goose Publishing.
