Very lucky to live on the edge of a forest in Scotland, with my husband and two cats, and whatever wildlife choses to visit. I write in my study, overlooking the garden, with more than enough going on to give me inspiration. (okay to distract me) I started writing seriously just over a year ago, determined to be published before I hit a big 'O' birthday—and I was fortunate enough to achieve my goal. Once I started I couldn't stop, even on holiday! Have lap top will travel is my motto... The hardest thing was admitting my voice was not as I thought it was, and accepting what I could write! Luckily, my editors and publishers seem to like it—long may it continue.
