I’ve always loved rollicking adventure stories. Think— All the Rivers Run, Anne of Green Gables, The Silver Brumby or Lord of the Rings. One week when I was eleven, I read seven of Enid Blyton’s Famous Five books, hardly leaving the comfort of an orange butterfly chair (so seventies). I was glued to the seat and suffered the first real bout of ‘just one more chapter’.
As I grew older, I gravitated to romance in all it’s passionate glory. Georgette Heyer sent me into a swoon and I fell in love with regency romances that wouldn’t let me go, even to cook the dinner. My family got used to eating burnt food and exasperatedly nicknamed them ‘book dinners’.
Today I try to combine both loves – adventure and romance. I love to read and write stories about spirited heroines and heroes, thrown together with plenty of exciting action. I live with my husband and three children and a tabby called Milli. She’s the worlds’ most timid cat and wouldn’t be seen dead (or alive) on a YouTube video.
