About me

Gender FEMALE
Occupation writer
Location Leeds, West Yorkshire, United Kingdom
Introduction I write for a living, have done since 2003. I have lost count of how many stories I have sold to women's magazines, but it's at least six hundred. My main markets are Woman's Weekly Take a Break's Fiction Feast and the People's Friend. I also give talks, run workshops and teach. My first book for writers was published in 2012 and is called THE WRITER'S TREASURY OF IDEAS. I have also published several books designed to help writers to improve their craft and find ideas. At the moment, I live in Leeds. I'm divorced and even though I'm in my (early) sixties, I still believe that one day, I will find true love. Cue the violins!
Interests Music, books, painting, quizzes, travel, laughing with friends.
Favorite Movies The first three Bourne films. The Usual Suspects, LA Confidential, Shrek, Mama Mia, Pleasantville, Galaxy Quest, The Long Kiss Goodnight.
Favorite Music Mozart to Led Zep, REM, Fleetwood Mac, all kinds of everything. My favourite songs are paranoid (Black Sabbath) and The First Time Ever I saw Your face - Robera Flack, Adel.
Favorite Books Anything by Terry Pratchett, Ray Bradbury, or John Wyndham. The Time Travellers Wife, The Curious Incident of the dog in the night time. Anything by Harlan Coben or Lee Child. I recently discovered Lucy Dhillon who writes wonderful romances.
