Background Information

Welcome!

...a short biography to introduce myself.

I am married,, and  spend my time divided between beautiful Cyprus where we have a mountain retreat (perfect for writing), and our home in the equally beautiful south of England.

I was educated in the Far East countries of Malaya and Singapore where my father served in the Royal Air Force. When we returned to the UK I finished my full-time schooling in Purbrook, Hampshire. I  trained as a Registered nurse and then once my children had almost grown up, I switched careers to run a string of travel and sport-related businesses.

During this period we were fortunate and healthy enough to enjoy a great amount of our free time skiing, sailing, walking, diving and slower pursuits like reading, drama and cooking. When not 'playing' I spent my other free time writing; mainly private stuff for myself and family -  poetry, short stories and a couple of unfinished novels.

When our children started their University degrees I suffered from the 'empty nest syndrome' and decided it was time to complete my own education and enrolled with the Open University - one of the most amazing enterprises of the last century. I read Science (as the English courses were all full) and in 2005 completed and passed my Science  Honours degree majoring in biology. I have to say that this was one of the proudest moments of my life and have never regretted learning all that chemistry, biology, geology and physics! On receiving my degree from the Chancellor in London, he asked me what I was going to do with myself now I had finished studying. Straight away I knew what I wanted to do and answered 'Finish the novel I have always wanted to write.'  I then went away to do just that.

The next year I had the beginnings of a story. I spent about 6 months researching the archives which I found fascinating, and another 18 months actually writing my first two books,The Seeds of Time and Harvest.

I  firmly believe that in studying for my degree; the discipline, commitment and stamina it entailed, made me realise that I could finish that first book and I would get it published! And I did!

So far, it has paid off and I'm thoroughly enjoying what must be the best of all my careers! since my first novel I have written a further nine books.

On there you'll learn more about me and the latest news regarding my writing.

I have a blog and would love to hear from you with your comments about 'The Crossing'. You can also follow me on Twitter, Facebook and Goodreads.

 Good reading!

 

Kind regards

Faith
