I am a divorced mum of two adult sons and nana to two lovely grandchildren living in Staffordshire UK. I began writing seriously when I contracted M.E. in '95 after having to resign from my job as learning support assistant in a mainstream high school because I was too ill to continue. M.E. also called chronic fatigue syndrome is a debilitating, little understood illness, which destroys lives. Writing has kept me sane through the loneliness and isolation which are one of the results of this illness.
I have written seven novels, two memoirs and two short story/poetry collections and have tried the traditional route to publication, then came the opportunity to publish with http://www.feedaread.com/ an Arts Council funded site so I went ahead with Song of the Phoenix which is available to order from amazon both in paperback and on kindle. Early signs are encouraging so I'll see where it takes me. Since February 2012 I have published the rest of the books I've written, a total of eight titles which are all available to order in paperback from FeedARead and kindle edition from amazon.
