I’ve been a compulsive fiction writer since primary school, when I was occasionally allowed to skip PE in order to finish a story.  I also make art textiles, practise rudimentary gardening (it takes a lot of practice, I find), help people with misbehaving horses or dogs (lovely, that one – very rewarding) and wish I would draw more often than I do.
I am wife to one engineer and mother to two more, and am very happily settled on the edge of the Northumberland moors, north of The Wall where the barbarians live. But that’s all quite boring. Here are some other facts about me.

I’ve worked in local government, in public libraries, in retail (briefly), in stables and in an art gallery. I’ve sat on the committees of three craft guilds and a choral society. I’ve got more or less to grips with desk-top publishing and Photoshop. And I’m really glad I learned to touch type.
