I've been writing all my life, but started writing seriously almost 2 years ago, in that time completing 3 novels.I'm an independent author - self-publishing my novels as eBooks only for the time being - born in the North East of England. I started my working life as an office manager and then a Nursery Nurse before going back to college as a mature student at 26 to train in the Performing Arts, becoming a Media Technician at the University of Sunderland for many years until my husband and I upped sticks in 2004 to move to the Spanish Canarian island of Tenerife, where we lived for a couple of years.And it was on my return to the UK that I decided to give writing more serios thought, finally deciding to try and fulfill my dream and go for it shortly after I turned 41.I now live in County Durham, spend almost every day thinking up new stories and creating new characters - and I love it! I just want to write stories that people want to read, and hopefully enjoy. Stories that give people the chance to escape everyday life and live in another world for a while. They're the kind of books I like to read, and they're the kind of books I like to write.
