Dear Reader

Welcome to my homepage

Hello and thank you for visiting. This was new to me a couple of years ago and without a sharp shove from my firstborn, I would still be none the wiser.  He kindly set up my blog and since then, through trial and error, I’ve found out just enough to run it myself! I must confess that since my discovery of widgets, I’m delirious with delight.

I divide my time between Sussex and Cumbria; I’m always on the look out for a quick, easy and cheap recipe to share; I tramp the fells at every opportunity and take photos whenever possible. When in Sussex, I work at a local GP surgery. In addition, I have written two books. After my first novel was published, my old school asked if I would become an alumna and in a past life, I trod the boards.

This year’s challenge involved dipping my toe into the world of jogging. I’m ashamed to say after about three months, I managed #5k4May and stopped! A mangled nail as a result of an over-enthusiastic descent of Coniston Old Man has been my excuse. Fitness levels now are falling and weight is creeping back so regaining control has become a top priority. You can join me via my jog blog posts.

With a keen interest in history, I was very pleased to have recently been accepted for training as a room guide with the National Trust. I am looking forward to being part of a  team dedicated to enriching the experience of visitors.

I’m a regular contributor to Whispering Stories, a glorious reviewing blog created by Stacey who would love you to pop over and take a look. In addition, I accept a few paperbacks directly from authors or publishers. My reviewing policy can be found by following the link below:


Having gone down the traditional publishing route for my first two books, my literary project for 2019 is learning (with some help) how to self-publish my third novel.

Thank you for dropping in and please have a browse around the topics on the ribbon above. You can also find me at:

I appreciate all feedback and respond to every contact. Thank you for reading.

With every good wish and kind regards,
