I've been writing for ever, but work did get in the way. The words still came, but they were boring - business plans, press releases and marketing material. And a law degree isn't a good idea for someone who thrives on creativity!
Along the way I studied graphology (handwriting analysis) and my book, How Compatible Are You? was published by mainstream publishers in the UK and USA and for a while was a best-seller and compulsory fare for graphologists. Then I wrote The Eccentric Entrepreneur, a biography which got long-listed for the Cricket Book of the Year. If you're not British, you probably won't realise the magnitude of this - but cricket is huge in the UK, and this was a big, big deal! The book sold out in hardback and was reprinted this year in paperback.
For ages I've been suppressing the fiction that has been desperate to get out. I gave in, and signed up for a Masters degree in writing. As part of that I'm writing a more literary book about childhood bullying and adult revenge. The book is nearly finished. My guilty secret has been the chick-lit for grown-ups that I've been writing on the side. Three Men and a Husband is now available as a paperback or eBook.
