I am old enough to remember sweet rationing but young enough to work an I pod. My first memory of story telling was to the younger classes at my primary school. My class teacher there encouraged this and my writing.
I have an Arts and enginering background. I have been employed as; A shop assistant, Aircraft Mechanic, Advertising Manager, Staff Writer, Lecturer, Theatre Set Designer, Garden Designer, Professional Model Maker, Travel Writer and Researcher.
I have been influenced by the Sixties, the Classics and women. I love the quirky and the faintly ridiculous. I am an incurably pragmatic romantic.
I adore most books, except those that I consider a waste of paper - but if an author has taken the trouble to write the words - the least I can do is take the trouble to read them.
