I was born in Rugby, Warwickshire, England. I have one brother and two sisters. I attended St.Oswalds infants and junior school and then went onto Harris secondary school from 1970-1975. I married Andrew Emery in 1989. Our son, Oliver was born in 1993. Unfortunately we divorsed in 2004, but have always remained good friends.
I began writing Xenitha in December 2007, after having a dream which I thought would make a good book. I wrote down as much as I could before going to work the following morning. Then began putting the story together that evening and it grew from there. At that time I had no idea that I'd end up writing a trilogy.
