About the Author
I won’t bore you with my life story, save to say that it has been rather varied. I have been an industrial chemist, an entrepreneur manufacturing toiletry products, and a bereavement counsellor, among other things. I have been married twice, have lived in various places around the UK and also spent four eventful years in Nigeria in the 1970’s, plus a very memorable school holiday at the age of sixteen in Paris. I mention this because it made such an enormous impression on me that I have based most of the action in this, my first novel, Karma, in that amazing city. I have spent many years editing and self-publishing books for my husband, and writing and creating life-story and poetry books for various private clients, Confined to lockdown for the past twelve months, I finally decided to fulfil a long-cherished ambition, to write my own novel, and Karma is the result.
I enjoyed the process so much that I am now completing my second novel, Secrets and Lives, to be released in a few months time.
I have twenty grandchildren and four great grandchildren who I am extremely proud of and who also keep me fairly busy!.
