I’m a mother of 4 and, therefore, an amateur taxi-driver. I’ve been writing since I was 5 when I discovered that my local paper would pay for poems. I’ve had a story published in a magazine years ago and a few articles in a paper, also years ago, but most of my writing has been for my own amusement only. I love reading, especially poetry, history and short-stories. I also draw and paint and love Maths-related things. I was born to be a refined lady of leisure, obviously, but something went awry along the way and I became an uncouth supply teacher, but am now a copywriter. When I win the lottery, I will write and draw full-time.
