About Trish

I've always wanted to write. For me it started in Primary School with what we knew as 'creative writing'. I had a rather inventive teacher who came up with a star rating system for homework. The more stars you gained, the closer you were to cashing them in for a night off. As I was truly awful at Mathematics, Creative Writing was my best way of earning stars and hence a lifelong passion was born. (For the record my first story involved Flumps who lived on a sponge island in the bathtub. I have no idea why I can remember that but still manage to forget where I've left my keys, the dog lead, that cup of coffee I had five minutes ago, etc..)

By the time I discovered Mills & Boon in my late teens I was determined I would end up writing for them. I would tell anyone patient enough to listen it was what I'd do one day (more often than not met with the sound I now know to describe as a snort of derision). But since I never had the guts to send anything away, real life took over and I embarked on a long career of careers.

Somewhere between teaching small children to sit on ponies, working as a sales rep for a music/video wholesaler and travelling as a show groom, I had a riding accident that made me re-think what I wanted out of life. As a result I brutally revised a manuscript I'd started when I was eighteen, discovered the e-harlequin boards, learned everything I could about submitting and finally took the plunge. My first submission became my first sale and ‘The Bridal Bet’ made me the published author I’d said I would be. Yay!

The moral of this long-winded story is never give up on your dreams. I now look back on all the careers I had, all the experiences gathered along the way, and I can honestly say it was great training for what I do now. Grist for the mill as the saying goes...
