I have always loved creating, whether it was in fabric, paint, or words.

I started out as a dress-designer in Bradford, West Yorkshire, working in mail order. I married and had children, before moving south in 1976, leaving my business behind.

I decided to take up the brush with canvas in 1985, developing new skills in Oil and Acrylic paint. Writting also became part of my creative world writting poetry and children's stories.

In 2013, I visited a stately home at Kingston Lacy, in Dorset, where I saw some wonderful carved art. It became my inspiration and the stepping stone for my first novel Ghostly Embrace. Now, I paint and write side by side. Painting stories in paint and painting with words for my novels.

I worked on Ghostly Embrace for five years. From its conception to the printed book.
