I was born in South Yorkshire in England, then I moved to Scotland more than twenty years ago. I retired early a few years ago due to ill health and spent my time reading, sewing, cooking and gardening. I decided that there ought to be more to retirement than that.

Reading has always played a large part in my life and the house is full of books. My youngest son challenged me to write a novel of my own and Initiation, book one in the Prometheus in Chains series was the result.

I enjoyed the process of telling the story. It combines my nascent interest in BDSM with the odd bit of autobiographical material in the best tradition of "write about what you know." I found that writing suddenly took over my life. Now I have a head full of Doms and subs and I have to spend a few hours a day writing or researching. Retirement has certainly delivered a lot more.

I still like to sit out in the garden listening to the birds singing, either engaged in some appliqué project or thinking through some aspect of plot or character. I can go nowhere without a pencil and notebook and my poor, long-suffering husband has gotten used to having to sit in the car with me and wait until the notes are finished before we can go get the shopping.

I believe the world has enough sadness in it and my characters will always get their HEA, even if the road is rocky.

Q: How did you start writing?

A: My youngest son challenged me to write a novel of my own. I don't think he meant a BDSM erotic novel though.

 

Q: Do you need quiet to write?

A: Usually yes, I do. Sometimes I wake up at 5am and start to write. This usually happens if I have been thinking of the plot or a character the previous evening before I went to bed. If I get an idea while I am out I just sit down anywhere and write, oblivious to what is going on around me.

 

Q: Do you plan your stories?

A: Not really. I usually start with the characters. I do a lot of thinking about them and the plot and sometimes I jot down ideas but by the time I sit down to write I know where I want to take them on their journey.

 

Q: What do you like to read?

A: If I could only have one book it would be Pride and Prejudice. I read it every year and I have many different copies of it. Jane Austen has been my favourite from my teens. Her novels are so well written, as well as funny and romantic. I love sci-fi. Isaac Asimov, Arthur C. Clarke, A.E. Van Vogt to name my very favourites. Recently, I have been reading a lot of erotic novels, often with a BDSM element. Since I started to write I do not have much time to read, unfortunately.

 

Q: What do you like to do when you are not writing?

A: I swim three times a week. I love to cook and invent recipes, which then appear in my books and will soon be on my website.

I love music. I clean the house to Heavy Metal played loud...just your average grandma. 

 

Q: Apart from writing what is important to you? 

A: My family is all important. My husband, my children and my grandchildren give me joy and my life meaning.
