About Me
I am a mother of four dogs, a snake, turtle and mice. During the Spring and Summer I tend to spend my time outside either in the gardens or out on my motorcycle or just outside. I recently lost my job of 15 years due to liquidation but that has allowed me to achieve some of my dreams. I am currently a pert time reporter for the local paper. I also love anything horror and mystery. I constantly reread the classics like Agatha Christie and H.P. Lovecraft as well as the current authors.
Type of Writer
Once I am going on a project I tend to push thru til the end but getting my interest and keeping it can be a problem.
Writing Style
I prefer to write my first draft long hand on paper. Then put it into a computer and edit as I go.
My interests know no bounds. Archaeology, writing, gardening,horror, marine biology, animals of all kinds, reading, walks, learning new things, motorcycles and cars (racing, wrenching on, driving), cooking, sharks, mysteries, pirates, Minions
