I started life as an actor - I was three when I made my first professional performance. I was a rabbit. I refused point blank to have make-up put on my face, thus I was the only white-faced rabbit amongst all the brown ones. Even at that tender age I knew how to catch the eye of the arts' reporters! This scene appears briefly in my novel set in the world of professional theatre, 'Brief Candle', ascribed there to the main female character, Camilla Weston - but there is nothing more of me in her, it is most certainly not autobiographical! After drama school I worked as an actress, off and on for many years, having my children in between times! I still run my own theatre company. Now, as I am older, parts are fewer and further between, as is typical even today and to placate my creative spirit thus I started writing - a great love of mine always - and added novels to the list of plays I had written over the years. I completely love it! I write every day and if anyone prevents me for any reason, I get quite infuriating to have around! I write about places I know and the sort of people I meet - although no one is taken from real life. I do not need to "borrow" real people to put into my novels, I create my own! 'Passion's Slave' was my first published novel - set partly in the cut-throat world of the City (my husband is a City man!) and a delightful West Sussex village. The leading male character causes controversy amongst my readers - some like him, some do not! I wonder which category you might fall into?! All my novels have a romantic theme running through them, but that is not the main point of the story - always there is danger lurking and the main characters either know it but don't realise how serious it is or do not know it is there at all. The reader does, however... 'Brief Candle', 'Natural Allies' (a saga) and Tigers of Wrath are all up there now for sale, too and shortly there will come another - an historical novel entitled 'The Gentlemen Go By' - with a leading man to die for! I would dearly have loved to have known him!! I hope you will enjoy reading my books as much as I have writing them. Oh yes, and then there are my children's books… I'll tell you about them another day!
