I find writing about fictional characters much more interesting than writing about myself but here goes…
I was born in Leeds, in the North of England. As a child, I liked to walk outside in the rain telling stories, pretending Iwas French. As a teen, I dyed my hair red with henna, drank pints in the pub and wore big shoes. In my twenties, I gained a Drama Degree from Manchester University and an Acting Diploma from the Webber Douglas Academy in London. Shortly after this I married Martin, we had our first child and moved to Brussels. A couple of years later we had another child and moved to live in Dallas, Texas. We’re still in the States and now have three children, three guinea-pigs and far too many fish!
Some other things about me…
I am happiest listening to the giggles of my children, nuzzling into my husband’s beard or curling my fingers around a hot mug of coffee.
I strive for balance in my life yet it remains illusive.
I aim for tolerance and an open-mind but am aware this may be idealistic.
It is the paradox of human perception and reality, which motivates my writing.
I am still telling stories … and occasionally, after a couple of drinks, I still like to pretend I’m French.
