I have been writing poems and stories since I was five years old to entertain my family. I went on to get a scholarship to the Guildhall School of Drama where I wrote my own work to perform. I then worked in repertory theatre all over the country finishing at Watford Rep which was then run by Jimmy Perry. I married my first husband who was an actor and we had two children. He left, so I trained as a teacher where I enjoyed reading many stories to many children until I retired.
