I was born and raised in Bristol in the West Country. I’m a married mother of two with a lifelong ambition to write a book.
I’ve worked in both large and small organisations. I’ve been a project manager, UAT tester, test analyst, business analyst, office manager, personal assistant, youth worker, library assistant, and general dogsbody. My experience has been varied and interesting.
Throughout my various roles, one thing stood out for me, I liked listening to people, hearing about their experiences and the challenges life had presented.
I decided to train as a counsellor, and qualified as an integrative counsellor in 2005. I, like my main character Frankie, take the professional ethic of confidentiality very seriously indeed, hence the title of my first book, ‘In the strictest Confidence.’
I have personal experience of the deaf and the difficulties they face. Raising awareness of the everyday issues they encounter is important to me. I hope I managed to do that in some small way in my book.
I hope you enjoy my book as much as I enjoyed writing it.
