Arty, biking, writing granny, that's me! Living on the Welsh coast, right at the bottom before it plops into the sea, I was a policewoman in Essex before I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer at a very early age.

Thanks to my amazing family and friends, I made a full recovery, left the police, met the man I then married and went to live in semi-rural Wales - well, I thought it was semi-rural after living in Essex. I mean, you had to drive fifteen miles to get to a Marks and Sparks. Where on earth did people buy their underwear? It was a small town that thought it was a village. But it had a beach.

I fell in love with it, along with the two adorable little boys I inherited. They inspired my passion for painting children, and they and their children inform the young characters in my books and subsequent career change as portrait painter. I even appeared on Sky's Portrait Artist of the Year!

The beach formed a huge part of my life, and I trained as a beach lifeguard, patrolling the beach and competing on the single ski. That all stopped when I needed a hip replacement and found carrying equipment too painful. Not to be outdone, I and three pals did a 45 mile walk and raised over £10,000 for Cancer Research, and not long after that, I decided I'd learn to ride a motorbike.

That was a huge and entertaining learning curve, and inspired my debut novel, Summer at the Art Cafe. I'm on my second hip now, still riding my 1000cc red Honda, and I've made some of my most enduring friendships through biking.

I hope you enjoy reading about my characters and their stories. Some of my life has inevitably given birth to some of theirs, but their personalities are all their own, and I keep expecting to see them in the local supermarket or on the beach!

Second novel, Meet Me at the Art Cafe has been out for a year now, and both the ebooks paperbacks have done really well this year, wearing a BestSeller banner many times.

Third novel, Escape to the Art Cafe is out at the end of June, and draws on my experiences as a Surf Lifeguard. Will Motorbikes and Surfboards mix? It won't be long before you find out. Hope you enjoy it, and as always, your Reviews are very much appreciated XX
