I grew up in East Yorkshire, spending my time in the sort of rolling countryside featured in David Hockney’s more recent works. After acquiring a degree in English Literature from London University I worked in non-fiction publishing. Undertaking a ‘Starting to Write’ course at Arvon’s Lumb Bank reminded me how much I had loved to write as a child and so The Mill Valley Girls novels, inspired by and set in the West Yorkshire landscape, were born. Now I live in the unspoilt East Kent countryside, perfect for writing, walking and inspiration.
