About Me

I'm a forty year old english woman, although I still feel like I'm twenty-two. I got stuck there, don't really know how it happened, I just wish the ageing process and gravity agreed. I live in Sorrento in Italy with my italian husband and three small boys.

When I hit 39 I got my first tattoo and started writing. The writing has taken over my life. I orginally began writing when I was twelve, and then stopped when I was thirteen, I suppose hormones and life took over, and it's taken me twenty-six years to find writing again, or it found me...I don't know, for the better of worse as it were.

I go through crazy extremes of ecstatic happiness when I'm published (just twice - don't know if that's good or bad) or bleak depressing lows, when I can't pick up a pen or turn on the computer. For me, writing is like being diagnosed with a manageable, but incurable disease. You get good and bad days, but it's always there and you know it's not going to go away.

I'm currently trying to write my first book, composed of eight or nine long-short stories, written in a stream of consciousness style, and all interlinking, but self-standing. It's not going to be a best seller, indeed, I'll be lucky if it even gets thrown on a sludge pile...I'm very lazy and can't be bothered doing the things that one has to do to find an agent or...or...finish a book.

Anyway, I don't like banging on about myself too much. I'll sub. some work and hopefully meet some writers. You're non-existent here in Sorrento.

Thanks for reading this
