As a child I lived in England, Gibraltar and Germany, and went to school in Belgium. Languages were my first love but I became a sculptor. I took a degree in Art History and then another in Fine Art Sculpture after which I worked as a sculptor for many years. During this time I married and had two daughters (one now a theatre director and the other a painter). As they grew up, I took an Open University degree in Psychology, followed by a PhD at Cambridge University.
My first novel, A Small Rain, was written alongside my PhD. For fifteen years I worked for the Medical Research Council investigating the language and memory systems of the brain by studying various forms of early-onset Cognitive Disorders. In my spare time I completed my second novel, Unseen Unsung, I garden to exhaustion when the weather permits. I go to the opera with my husband whenever I can. In the last couple of years I have had great fun learning to dance the Lindy Hop.
My third novel, Border Line, was published on December 5th 1914.
Surviving the Death Railway: A POW’s memoir and Letters from Home was published by Pen and Sword in June 2016
