The glamorous life of the writer…
It was great fun to play around with the idea of the glamourous life of the writer at this photoshoot, but this was quite an unusual day for me, you are much more likely to find me at my laptop wearing my pyjamas, or on my allotment wearing my scruffy gear and unicorn wellington boots.
From the moment I realised that books were written by someone there was nothing else that I wanted to do, and many an evening, weekend and school holiday was spend writing.
Everyone that who heard my dream told me that writing wasn’t a real job, which put me in a tricky situation as there was nothing else that I wanted to do. And after years of struggling to work, when I became too unwell to work full time the sparkly silver lining for me was having the freedom to write.
All my stories are based on a real experience and told in the candid, darkly humorous, compelling, occasionally tragic way that women might speak to their closest girlfriends. If you enjoy hearing about the ups and downs of someone who doesn’t take themselves too seriously then you will enjoy my books.
Accessibility in all areas of life are really important to me, so to accommodate those with literacy issues or eye sight difficulties my books are formatted using guidelines from The British Dyslexia Association, larger type, a regular shaped font, wider spacing between lines, and bold titles so you know when a new story is about to begin.
If this all sounds interesting to you, then why not become part of ‘Team Eden’, they get to read unreleased stories, hear news first, vote on each new cover, get invited to author events, and even become a first reader click here if that’s something you would like to do.
You can buy my books online or through any independent bookseller, or you can buy them directly from me .
