I spent my formative years lost in the world of Mills & Boon romance when, I really ought to have been paying attention to my teachers. Up against sparkling heroines, gorgeous heroes and the magic of falling in love, the dissolution of the monasteries and ablative absolutes didn't stand a chance.
Eventually realising that I couldn’t live in a dream world forever, I went on to acquire a degree in languages and hold an eclectic collection of jobs. Then a stroll to the River Thames one Saturday morning led me to my very own hero. The minute I laid eyes on the hunky rower getting out of a boat, clad only in Lycra and carrying a 3-metre oar as if it was a toothpick, I knew I'd met the man I was going to marry. (Luckily the rower thought the same!)
I’ll always be grateful to whatever it was that made me stop dithering and actually sit down to type Chapter One, because dreaming up my own sparkling heroines and gorgeous heroes is pretty much my idea of the perfect job.
Originally a Londoner, I now live in Spain where I spend much of the time reading, failing to finish cryptic crosswords and trying to convince myself that lying on the beach really is the best way to work.
