Welcome to my website!

Whether you found your way here intentionally or completely by accident, I am so glad you did.

I’ve had many roles in life – daughter, sister, wife, mother, student, barmaid, cleaner, library assistant, factory worker, tour guide, teacher, assessor. But on this page, I am a writer.

I love writing. It brings me so much joy. And if I can only bring a smile to one person’s face or brighten up someone’s day, then my efforts have all been worthwhile.

If you have a look around, you will see I have written two books, Stones in my Bra (also available as an audio book), and Spoons on my Feet, both in the Traffic Jam of Life trilogy. I also publish regular posts in my blog, Musings on the Mundane, about something in daily life that I’ve found entertaining. The posts have been published weekly in The Sheffield Telegraph and for a while were all pandemic-related. These are now going to form the backbone of a new book ‘The Corona Chronicles – Lockdown Life with the Nearly-Beloved and Grunting Teen‘, which I hope to publish soon.

It would be lovely if you feel inspired to read my posts, buy my books and join my Readers’ Club and blog email-list. But if you’ve just paused for a moment in the layby of my life and feel there are more scenic possibilities on the road ahead, then that’s perfectly okay and I wish you a safe and pleasant journey onwards.
