Editor Laura White's review in The Moorlander Newspaper
I was born in Surrey, England and went to Godalming County Grammar School. From an early age, I was always writing and still have some of my stories from when I was seven years old - the spellings are lovely! At age ten, I wrote my first full-length book, Amber. It was the story of a horse - Black Beauty was my favourite book at the time! I sent it to a publisher, and months later I received my first, albeit very kind, rejection letter. I continued writing pony books until school exams demanded more of my attention and I had to put down my pen.
College and various jobs followed. I married, moved to Sussex and stayed at home with my daughter whilst running my own company, looking after five horses, sheep, goats, a brood of rescued hens, two dogs, a cat and a rabbit. So little time for writing.
When I decided to write No One Must Know, it was one of those 'I used to do that' moments - I'm sure some of you know what I mean.
I now live in Devon and when I'm not writing I enjoy gardening, walking the surrounding countryside and coastlines with my husband and of course, researching for my books, and reading.
