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. My first three books were published in paperback by Transworld Publishers, a division of Random House.
Since 2011 Blackbird Books have been publishing my titles, both rights- reverted and new. One title – Two Steps Backward – still remains with Transworld and is published in paperback only.
I’m currently working on a manuscript about our Kenyan safari, and hope to have it ready for publication by Spring 2016.
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.
