Can you please share with us alittle about yourself?
Iam a busy mother of two children, with a husband who has got used to me sittingtapping away on my laptop. By day I sit at my job, all respectable and prim butby night I am imagining feisty heroines and sexy alpha males.
Iam a British author who grew up with a love of reading. Books created otherplaces, times and worlds to visit. It was the desire to try to write that sawme pen her first short story as a teenager. But then everyday life got in theway and it was only recently that I began scribbling again. Encouraged, orrather dragged screaming and kicking by my critique group UCW I decided to‘have a go’.
Myteenage dream is finally coming true.

What is your most interestingwriting quirk?
Hmm I do it best in bed!

Can you please tell us about yourlatest book(s)?
My very first release is calledWildfire and is released through Breathless Press.
Itis the story of Millie St Clair who has an encounter with a stranger. The nextmorning it all appears to be a dream until he turns up and whilst feelingthreatened she discovers a hidden ability. Millie runs to her grandma's homewhere she learns about her heritage and the reason why the stranger, Bradenwants her.
Iwill stop there and let the readers discover the rest.

How did you come with the idea forthis story?
LOL.Well it started on one bored evening when I was chatting online with myCritique group, UCW. All the ladies seemed to be talking about their currentWIP and I was just saying how bored I was. Cherie Nicholls, who is a fabulousauthor, set a five hundred-word challenge to include a carwash, a dress and a stranger.That was the start and once my friends read it they demanded more whicheventually became Wildfire.

Who is the one author that youwould love to meet someday and why?
Oh wow, that's a hard question.I think it would be someone like Shakespeare. He wrote such a variety that itamazes me!

What is the best piece of adviceyou would give to someone that wants to get into writing?
Readeverything, get involved with a critique group who can advise and cheer you onand keep going. Write for yourself and because there are stories in you, notjust to be published.
