Born in England, I have spent the past forty years in California. Recently retired, I have spent the past two years writing. My autobiography, NO ORDINARY WOMAN, has just been published in the UK, as well as my book of short stories - THE MAN WHO LOST HIS GENIUS & OTHER STORIES.

Background Information

My twenties were spent working for the glamorous Granada Television in Manchester, England in the swingin' sixties!  At 27 I emigrated for the second time to America, worked for Universal Studios, a famous talent agency, and then for a movie producer.

After marriage, children - and managing my actor son - I started a new life...on my own.  Finding a writers' site to upload my mother's true story motivated me to start writing myself, and I did.  I wrote short stories and poetry and found that I was pretty good and won several contests.  I decided to write my life story - found a publisher - and was fortunate enough to hold my book, NO ORDINARY WOMAN, in my hands last month, January 2012.

I moderate several forums on a popular writing site - spend a lot of time editing work for fellow authors - and am now working on a full-length novel.

I live by the beach in sunny California wih my small parrots, three cats and - now and again - with my much younger boyfriend.

Additional Information
