Reader & Writer


Ex-teenager, now Mother-of-three - how did that happen?

I love writing and a long time ago I had four books published. Now, the kids are at school, (phew) I want to get reading and writing all over again. My first book here: 'My Hiki' is set in Japan where I spent many happy years as a teacher of English.

Favorite Books

'Girls guide to Hunting and Fishing' by Melissa Banks
This saw me through my twenties - indispensable, funny and wise.

'Wuthering Heights' by Emily Bronte
This saw me through my teens. Although I wouldn't touch Healthcliff with a bargepole now, I used to really lurve him.

Favorite Quotes

'Be the change which you wish to see in the world.'
