Hello and thank you for dropping by today. I live in South Devon with my husband and our two elderly cocker spaniels.
Prior to turning my attention to writing, I was, for more years than I care to remember, a secretary. My two daughters are grown-up with children of their own. I’m proud Granny to four grandchildren. Where has the time gone?
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 to England from Argentina at the age of 10. Cousin Doreen was President of The Siamese Cat Club until her passing in January 2008.
My likes include: Writing because it’s so relaxing. Walking by the sea, taking photos, gardening, and watching the many birds in my sunny garden. Baking. I actually make the best pancakes – according to my little Grandson. I’m a fan of all types of music.
Thank you for dropping by today.
