Fooled you!


Sorry about that... I was just testing out a Call To Action.

The truth is I'm a mum of two small human tornados who keep me busy, but don't worry – I'll always deliver your work on time!

Oh yeah, and I loooove narrowboating – odd, I know. But you should try it; it's as much fun as you can have at 2mph!

Nothing sinister about me really, other than the fact that I love horror movies. The only problem is... I'm too chicken to watch them on my own, so I usually have to enlist some unlucky sap to watch them with me. 

I also have a great love for literature... my existence has had a sprinkling of literature throughout.

Yes, yes – I know that sounds dramatic, but from the age of 4, I practically lived in my library.

Some of my best days were spent working in my local independent bookshop, sipping tea and shooting the breeze. I literally got paid (albeit not very much) to talk about books... all day!

Then came my grown-up jobs where I had to 'adult' in publishing houses such as The Royal Pharmaceutical Society (Pharm Press).​

Anywho, so glad you stopped by to check out a little bit more about me.

In case you’re also a lover of books, here are some of my faves!

​​Maxine's writing is warm, energetic and fun. She wrote a great guest blog post for me. I'd be happy to recommend her to others.

Thank you!

"People on the outside think there’s something magical about writing, that you go up in the attic at midnight and cast the bones and come down in the morning with a story, but it isn’t like that. You sit in back of the typewriter and you work, and that’s all there is to it."
– Harlan Ellison
