A proud bookworm since childhood, I write the sort of stories I love to read – heart-warming, character driven and strong on location. Having moved around extensively and lived in three countries, I find places inspiring and the setting of my novels often becomes as much a part of the story as my characters.
I have an over-active imagination, am prone to crying with happiness as much as with sadness, but when it comes to my writing, I lean heavily towards the upbeat and insist on a happy ever after. As one of my favourite authors, Jane Austen, once wrote, ‘let other pens dwell on guilt and misery’.
I love travelling, words, cats and wine, and enjoy them in any combination. I have two grown-up children and currently split my time between Switzerland, where I live with my patient husband, and England where I live with my characters.
