Hello and thank you for dropping by today. My minty-green glass desk is NOT always so tidy. I did clear the clutter for you all today. Rosie, cocker spaniel, ‘snooked’ into this photo.
Author bio: I live in South Devon with my husband and our two elderly cocker spaniels (Rosie above) and Lucy (until her passing on 11th January 2021).
Prior to turning my attention to writing, I was, for more years than I care to remember, a personal secretary. Writing came into my life many years later. My two daughters are grown-up with children of their own. I’m a proud Granny to four grandchildren. Where has the time gone?
Writing: I’m often asked, “What inspired you to write about a quirky seagull? And why did you call him Eric?”
“My main character, Eric Seagull, is based on a Professor of Physics who worked with my dad in the early seventies. Eric, the professor, asked me to dance at a firm’s Christmas party my dad organised. Eric asked my dad’s permission to dance with his daughter, me! No, was my answer. Eric wore a flamboyant waistcoat and bow tie. His hair was yellow and extremely messy. Eric Seagull was born many years later in 2009 when a local seagull gave me the eye as I passed by.”
Other authors in my family:
A love of writing and reading good books is definitely in my family’s genes! My mother’s late cousin, author Doreen Tovey, wrote many books about Siamese cats. She also wrote Life With Grandma which is about my Great Grandmother who sailed from Argentina to England at the age of 10. Cousin Doreen was President of The Siamese Cat Club until her passing in January 2008. Both grandsons have written stories that have been published.
My likes: Writing. beach combing with my grandchildren. I take far too many photos. Gardening and watching many birds that visit all year round. Baking. I actually make the best pancakes – according to my little Grandson. Prefer music to the telly. However, I love watching Christmas films! My grandson always wins at Snakes & Ladders. And now, 2021 has well and truly arrived, and I’m writing my first Novella. “When Time Stood Still’.
Wish me Luck x
