I love travelling, writing, reading and care about human rights and animal welfare. The qualities I most value in other people are courage, compassion, loyalty and a sense of humour.
I have lived in south-west France since 1995 and am currently surrogate mother to two pgymy goats, two dogs, one parrot, three French hens and a partridge in a pear tree.
Our farmhouse is now for sale as we plan to downsize, remaining in the same beautiful region of France.
Six of my non-fiction titles are published by Blackbird Digital Books:
I Wish I Could Say I Was Sorry - a memoir of life in post-war London, colonial and post-colonial Kenya, and a dysfunctional family.
