One hot summer when I was a child, I played on a beach and made up stories about Princes and Princesses and wished I could stay there forever. Today I live near that same beach on the Isle of Anglesey and the sun even shines occasionally. I am still making up stories but now that people read them, I can’t claim the credit for the one where a real life Prince called William brought his new bride Kate to live on the island – and the cynics say dreams don’t come true! Happily romance is not dead.
How did I get into writing?
It's a question I often ask myself. With small children to take care of (they're now fully grown up) the prospect of continuing with a nursing career with its notoriously unsociable working hours did not seem attractive! So, encouraged by a husband who, bless him, believes that I can do anything; I decided to try my hand at writing. I’ve always been an avid Mills & Boon reader and so it seemed natural to write a romance novel – now I simply couldn’t imagine doing anything else.
I tend to set my novels in locations that I already know and love, though my primary focus is always my characters. I confess that I do maintain a particular fondness for some of the heroes, though I won't say who – a girl is allowed her favourites!
I am a keen gardener and I enjoy cooking and running. I often run along the beach accompanied by my Jack Russell, Herb, as one of the joys of living on an island means that the sea is never very far away!
It's A Wonderful Life
