I was born at the very end of 1960 so I lived through all the horrific clothes and home haircuts before sampling the very interesting fashions and hairstyles of the 1970s. I learnt at a very early age that the best way to get through difficult times is to laugh about them. If you read my books you'll see why!
I have never written a book before in my life. For years my daughter kept telling me that all my stories should be in a book. I would reply that it would be a very short, boring book. Eventually, to shut her up, I sat down to write a page or two. After the first chapter I found I couldn't stop, everything came rushing back ( I think I was repressing it) and eventually I had to bring it to a close before it took over my life.
To my amazement, people found it funny and wanted more so Book 2, "Don't Tell My Mum! " was born followed by "Don't Blame Me, It's Everybody Else!" and then "Don't Know Where She Gets That From (Adventures in Parenting ). My fifth book "Don't Get Me Started We'll Be Here All Day " is out now.
Anyway, that's me. I have been married longer than the Kray twins were incarcerated, have one grown up (sort of) daughter, two big stupid dogs and a parrot that hates me. I pass my time picking up dog poo, babysitting various little relatives and looking after my mother. Yes she's still around!! I also spend a bit of time writing now as well, thanks to you lot who seem to find my family entertaining. I thank you all for your lovely comments and reviews and even those of you who hated it, thanks for giving it a go.
If you're feeling nostalgic, give my books a look over. I would be very grateful and it might bring back a few memories as well as giving you the odd giggle.
