IMAGINATION V COMMON SENSE
My Welsh imagination tends to overwhelm my practical Lancashire side. From a very young age I made up adventure stories and persuaded my childhood friends to act them out with me. When I had to join the real world I was a Languages teacher in several countries before giving in to the urge to write stories.
A lifelong love of Jane Austen inspired me to set my Regency Tales in the age of Napoleon. This gives the opportunity for elegance, glamour, duels and social customs that both shock and fascinate, together with adventure, intrigue and romance. A few real persons appear among the characters, in small but necessary roles.
