I have been a vegetarian since 1980, a non-smoker since 1982, and lived in south-west France since 1995. In a previous life I lived in beautiful East Africa.
I’ve had lots of money and lived like a princess; and I’ve had no money at all and lived on Smash for several months. I learned that having, or not having money, has nothing at all to do with being happy.
After a career as a secretary, PA and in-house editor, I started writing non-fiction in 1998. Since then three of my books have been published in paperback by Transworld Publishers, a division of Random House: Best Foot Forward, Two Steps Backward, A Perfect Circle. They have also been published in large print hardback editions, and A Perfect Circle is also available in an audio version.
You can read excerpts and see reviews of all my books, as well as previews of forthcoming titles on my website French Footprints.
I love animals, read most genres except paranormal, vampire and romance, hate housework and cruelty, and would like to be a size 10.
My first love:
A Somali-Arab pony called Cinderella.
