About Me
I have been a writer since my 20s, and wanted to write since I was old enough to hold a pen. I grew up on C.S. Lewis and E.Nesbit, and later Tolkien. However, I have followed a series of careers to earn a living, including acting, secretary, learning support assistant, special needs lecturer, (and various other jobs) until I finally settled on genealogy as a self-employed way to earn money. I have a degree in history/literature with the O.U.
Type of Writer
Historical (often with a family history/mystery theme). I often write in several different time periods.
Interests
History, English Literature, theatre and film, science fiction, alternative health, yoga, personal development.
