I have co-written two novels for Choc Lit – Beneath an Irish Sky and An Irish Promise. My co-writer, Valerie Olteanu, lives in Canada, and we have never met in person. I count myself extremely lucky that BAIS was accepted by the first publisher approached.
I spent most of my working life as receptionist/admin for the NHS.
I live on the south coast, though my favourite place in the world is Ireland.
I am an avid reader but unfortunately an even more avid ‘just one clicker’. My Kindle is full of books I may never get to read. I still prefer to read a ‘proper’ book.
My taste in books is generic – I enjoy contemporary novels with an element of romance but mainly family drama, psychological thrillers, fantasy (eg Tolkien and Terry Pratchett), and occasionally some from an historical genre – most notably, Ken Follett’s Pillars of the Earth.
