Product description

About the Author

Despite my love of the sea and the South West of the UK, I have tucked myself away in Shropshire - the largest landlocked county in the country - with my husband and our two children. I run a small publishing business - Heddon Publishing - providing essentially self-publishing authors with all they need to turn their story from an original, basic word processor document to a carefully edited, proofed and formatted book. I have met some fantastic people this way, and work with authors as close by as Shrewsbury and as far away as the Australian outback. Family comes first, business second, and after that I write as often as I can - not as often as I would like but I hope there will be more time for that later. I visit Cornwall as often as possible and it never fails to inspire me, which is why I set Writing the Town Read there. My second novel, which I am currently working on, is largely set in my home county of Yorkshire; however I can feel a trip to Cornwall is on the cards for some of my characters! I write books that I would like to read. I enjoy contemporary writers such as Kate Atkinson, Maggie O'Farrell and Anne Tyler. Not that I am putting myself up there with them in writing terms but I love the way their books don't really fit a particular genre, which I think is also true of my writing. Whilst I would love to make a living from my books, I write because I love writing and I need to believe in the story, themes and characters. I started Writing the Town Read while in my late 20s, before I became pregnant with my first child, and I think that this is reflected in the book. Looking Past I have written now that I am well into my 30s and a mother of two. I think these life changes are also represented by my writing. I hope to keep on writing stories and that the quality and the content grows and matures along with me. I hope I am still writing when I am 100.
