... I suddenly realised that ever since I was a small girl I have always written and it dawned on me that if I did this with more gusto I might possibly just get published.
FINALLY I knew what I wanted to be! A CHILDREN'S AUTHOR!
And several years on I still want to be one! It's so much fun! Every day I live in what ever world I choose with what ever friends and characters I like.
As Frankie would say, Poodle-Noodle, what could be more fabaroony than that?
I still have other itches to scratch and am always doodling (I draw with a mouse. Not the squeeky-cheese-nibbling sort. I am petrified of the poor little creatures just like Minnie Piper), redesigning my house (and other people's) or making things.
All of which works up an appetite. I love eating and am a passionate veggie gluten free cook. I make my own bread and yoghurt (soya) and always have a mini-farm of sprouting mung beans on the go!
I am a non-bendy yogi and practise every day but after 15 years I still cannot touch my toes! Sorry if this is depressing for anyone who's about to start out. BUT... I can sit with my bottom between my feet and put my head back on the floor a bit like a break dancer!
I live in Gloucestershire in my colourful prize-winning house with my original retro husband.
I have two grown up sons, a garden full of slugs, but no cat!
