Once upon a time – when the world was very different, I was a Psychiatric nurse. Weird how things move on… Now I have four books published, as well as one out on audio. Inside my head, is the beginnings of a fifth bubbling away.
I grew up in Newport, South Wales, (UK), and happily fed on a rich diet of Welsh and greek myths. Perhaps it’s not so surprising my stories, especially for the younger age group, are full of strange and often magical creatures.
In my fantasy worlds, danger and friendship are often VERY close partners, so be prepared for some hair-raising adventures!
I’m a lover of fantasy. My first love was Tolkien and Lord of the Rings. I had a brief fling with Issac Asimov and Arthur C Clarke in the late 70’s. I read every single word of J K Rolling’s books out loud to my children, long before the tapes came out… Ursula Le Guin Earthsea series is wonderful… I think you get the idea?
Perhaps it’s my Welsh upbringing that gives me a fascination with the dark and the perverse? It certainly gave me an ear for the lyrical.
