I live in East Sussex with my Australian husband and one chinchilla. We have two grown up children and returned to England sixteen years ago after spending fourteen years down under. I am a Christian and an active member of a local church.
I enjoy writing short stories but do aspire to producing a novel. I like fiddling around with a variety of arts and crafts and particularly enjoy patchwork and cake decorating, both done with great gusto and very little talent! I am trying my hand at children's stories.
