Thank you for reading this. I was born in Nottingham, UK and I am blessed to have a wonderful husband and two beautiful grown-up children. My first writing success was at the age of 10 when I won a writing comp for my essay on the cocoa-bean. After moving to France, I began a weekly, half page column for the Bella magazine in the UK and built up a large fan base. I published my first book in August 2014, a memoir, written from the depths of my soul! I now have the 'writing bug' and have 2 more already on the go.
