Hello!   I am a writer but I also sew and cook,  which works well: while the marmalade is cooking I can write, and while I chop oranges and grapefruits or sew I can think.  I have written for The Telegraph, the Daily Mail, Country Illustrated, the Scottish Field, Saga magazine, The Spectator and The Oldie. 


I have four grown-up children and I live in West Sussex with a Parson Jack Russell terrier called Beano. 


Some of my favourite writers are real oldies:  Wodehouse, Dickens and Trollope.  Also Hilary Mantel, Barbara Pym, Mick Herron.   Recently I've loved  the Plague novels of Minette Walters, Lily by Rose Tremain,  Small Pleasures by Claire Chambers,  The House of Mirth by Edith Wharton,  Small Things Like These by Clare Keegan and The Whalebone Theatre by Joanna Quinn.
