I discovered Medical Romance when: I met the man who would become my husband. I had been working in television and had a couple of months in between jobs so thought I would have a go at writing a romance given that I was in the heady throes of falling in love. When I was looking on the Mills and Boon website I saw the Medical Romances and knew it was the genre for me.
I wrote my first story when: I was about 10. I very distinctly remember writing a story about a squirrel named Spunky who liked to sort out the social dynamics amongst his large family of squirrels.
Where do you live? On a farm in Southeast England along with my husband, 15 cows, 2 sows, 12 piglets, a handful of chickens (number changes depending upon Mr Fox!) and two very large dogs.
My best trait is: my newfound ability to make salted caramels.
My worst trait is: Clumsiness. I can fall off of a flip flop. Not very graceful.
Five things on your bucket list:
Climb Mt Kilimanjaro
Publish a Medical Romance (hey wait! I got that one!)
Eat sushi in Japan
Learn how to barrel race in a rodeo
Make a faultless batch of profiteroles
