A bit about me…
I write mystery stories: the Exham on Sea contemporary crime series set in a small Somerset seaside town, and the Thatcham Hall Mysteries, 19th Century historical mystery romances set in Victorian England.
When I’m not writing, I collect grandsons, Victorian ancestors and historical trivia, like to smell the roses, lavender and rosemary, and cook with a glass of wine in one hand and a bunch of chillies in the other. I love the Arctic Circle and the equator and plan to visit the penguins at the South Pole one day, when I’ve knitted enough woollen underwear.
I’ve been many things, from a speech therapist to a road sweeper. Recently, I spent a few years working in the criminal courts, seeing the world from both the dock and the witness box alongside vulnerable witnesses and defendants. Now, I walk in the country and breathe sea air in Somerset.
Just around that time, J K Rowling brought out another Harry Potter story. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire; the fourth or fifth of the series. When the teenager came home from school one day, he found a copy on his bed.
He loved every word, went back to the beginning of the series and read each book in order.
That teenager was my son. I forgot all about that day until, fifteen years later, he reminded me. He reads for pleasure every day, now.
Yes, it brought a tear to my crotchety old eye. That’s the power of the right book. It changes your life.
That’s why I write.
