I was born on an old estate in North London, back bedroom to be exact!! Went to the local school with my sister, who is a year older than me. Had a wicked hippy mother, who I love dearly, and who is still alive an kicking an now into Rock music (not that she had much choice with two punk daughters!!) lol
I had my kids early, (well I do like to be different!), so ended up leaving school at 15. Yes I was a teenage mum, But I hated school anyway as I was artistic and there wasn’t much call for artists! (still isn’t!). Anyway, I tried going to college where I discovered I was dyslexic, but they couldn’t offer me any help, so yet again I dropped out, but not until I’d got a city and guilds in numeracy!! I also studied Music and performing arts, as I loved it, but didn’t get the certificate thanks to my dyslexia and a nasty teacher!! (But that’s another story!) When I had my youngest son (nearly 8 years ago), I thought I’d try for the open university, not thinking I’d get anywhere, and they re-tested me for dyslexia and gave me the help I needed. There amongst my personal problem (including a major op) I managed to gain a certificate in Natural sciences and ¾ of a degree in planetary science….. So I did have brains after all.
Well, after a while the maths began to get to me, so thought I’d take a break for a while. During that break my love of music helped me discover a unique band and I joined their forum. Whilst there I started writing fan fictions, but only sending them to my closest friends on there, they then asked if they could send them to others as they loved them, and in the end I was getting requests to write more…… This has lead me to write my first book, which is now available at Lulu.com (a huge Thank You to Marcus Lyndale for helping me with editing and proof reading, and generally giving me encouragement to publish it!)
My second book is in the writing and will be called ‘If Wishes Were Horses’… but it is taking a while to write due to family commitments and becoming a first time granny (yes I am too young for this… but that’s the price you pay for having kids young!! ROFL)
For any more info about 'Masquerade' and how to buy it, or the progress of 'If Wishes Were Horses'... watch this space!... or rather my blogs and bulletins. For any more info about me.... JUST ASK!!... I don't bite.... Often!!! LOL
