This author page has some very bossy instructions, but if I don’t comply it won’t let me in :(


Background Information

 This author page is so bossy that it won't allow me to cut and paste my bio, which I have slaved over in a Word document. I will leave it to think about its behaviour and return when it has reconsidered.

It seems that I am required (emphasised in red) to tell the world about myself (me?) and my motivation for writing, and if I leave this space blank my name won't be displayed in the alphabetical listing. 

As for motivation - fame and fortune comes to mind, but making readers laugh will suffice.

My first published article was in the school magazine (Pensby Secondary Modern School for Girls in case you're interested, or went there). Unfortunately for collectors it was chucked out by my mother when she realised that better use could be made of the drawer housing my junk.

 

Birth Place
Cheshire,  UK
Accomplishments

School prefect.
Oh, do they mean writing achievements?

‘Leon Chameleon PI and the case of the missing canary eggs’ was one of Bookchat’s 1993 South African Books of the Year.

‘But Can You Drink The Water?’ was runner-up in the Peter Pook humorous novel competition UK. Semi-finalist (top 50 out of 5000) in the 2010 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award.

Mystery at Ocean Drive, was runner-up in the 2010 Citizen/Pan MacMillan YA novel award,

But Can You Drink The Water? was a semi-finalist in the 2010 ABNA competition.

Additional Information

Why, I hear you ask, are your books priced so reasonably? Well, when it comes to book buying I judged my target readership to be of a similar cheapskate mentality to my own (i.e. getting three books for $2.99 instead of just one). Besides, everyone loves a bargain.
