I started writing during a period of bleakness after a long term relationship came to an end and a very good friend badgered and cajoled me into writing and eventually challenged me to take part in the NaNoWriMo online challenge in November 2005. The Portal Between is the result of that challenge and was mostly written during that month. I wrote 50,000 words in 30 days and loved every agonising moment.

I was born in March 1969, the same month John Wyndham died. Apparently I watched the moon landings. I was four months old so I don't remember, but I've been told I watched them.

There followed a relatively uneventful childhood and traditionally turbulent teenage years.

I left school at 18 to start teacher training but never finished it. I then drifted into a series of jobs - I was not really happy in any of them. I spent most of my time in various retail chains and eventually ended up working for the Post Office. In 2000 I had my first child. His sister followed in 2003. But I never went back to work after I had her. I set up my own business instead - Ethics Trading. I downsized my life and started to live more simply. But I discovered the vast wealth of the internet!
