I was born in the north of England and brought up there and in South Africa.  Since 1988 I have lived in Scotland, initially in Edinburgh and then in the South West.  For the last 18 years I have lived on a farm between Dumfries and Moffat with my husband, 2 sons, 4 dogs, 3 cats, 2 ponies… and numerous other animals.

Writing is my hobby, my main interest, a way to make friends – and just a great thing to do!  I love it, nearly as much as I love reading.

    Thank you so much for all your help yesterday at the writers’ workshop. Wow, what a lot to take in, but you were so warm and generous with your advice, I fell much less daunted now about the actual publishing side of the writing process. And can you please pass on my thanks to your friend Gwen. What a lovely encouraging person she is.
    Right, inspiration is now aflame…oops can inspiration flame ? but it helps describe the burn in my head to get cracking…after a morning at your Blists Hill Book Fair. Thank you once again , and you never know, I might see you again at a RNA conference. Lynn Forth

  2. So pleased you found the session useful. The longer I’m in this business the more I think it is about perserverance, so do hang in there! I’d definitely recommend the RNA New Writers Scheme (early entry essential!) and any local writing groups. I’m sure we’ll meet again at some event. Good luck!
