in 2013 I took the plunge and put aside my dreams of being a writer and made it reality with my first book: Secret of Aldwych Strand: End of the Pier Affair.
It's not been an easy journey, but then nothing worthwhile is. Over the last four years I've been on amazing writing journey - 4 books in total and a publisher who has total faith in my writing. What more could a girl ask? (I'm 18 on the inside... ok!)
Reading the guidelines for these things, Amazon suggest I be creative with my biography. So I'm going to answer some of Elvis Presley's questions in: "Where do you come from."
Where do you come from? Wales via Plymouth and all points inbetween
Tell me who you are: A woman who lives on a 65foot widebeam boat near Ely
Do you come from another world? No, but I did drive Tom (The greatest Dr) Baker through London in a mini metro, and I have been inside the tardis.
Or from some distant star? Not like Mork. But back in the day, I was in a movie. I played a BBC Worldwide executive and had a reasonable billing in the credits. Does that count?
Where do you come from? Politically, my heros are Nye Bevan and Lloyd George. Media wise, I love all things Scifi. My favourite books are the Count of Monte Cristo, Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy and anything by Terry Pratchett. Musically, I like Queen, David Bowie and Pink Floyd. Nuff said.
Are you what you seem? Only if you think I'm a teacher with a love of sci-fi. Then yes, I am
Are you real? Only if Daleks and the Doctor are
Are you standing there? No. I'm sitting in my Mother Outlaw's lounge in Rainham writing this biography. I know some pople can type standing up. I can't.
Or is it just a dream? It can't be, because I'm living it.
