I was born on 10 July in Salisbury, Wiltshire to a German mother and scientist father.
We moved to the little village of Stratford sub Castle when I was in my teens and
where my mother still lives in the shadow of a magical Roman fort, Old Sarum. It was
an inspiring place to live.
My childhood was very happy and I spent many an hour writing stories just for
I took degrees in both Fine Arts and Psychology and after the usual student years
living in a variety of unusual places including a remote lock cottage in rural
Warwickshire, I now live in Stratford upon Avon with my husband Saul. I have a son,
Miles and a stepdaughter Phoebe.
I have travelled throughout Europe for my work and currently work in Media and Advertising.
My father was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease in 2006 and our worlds changed forever. I put pen to paper and started to write The Silent Scream. I guess it was my way of dealing with life at such a cruel time. It wasn't an easy book to write, moments flowed and then came to a complete stop. From many words, The Silent Scream erased and condensed itself into simply nine chapters, from the macrocosm of thoughts to the microcosm of words. I wanted others to know how silently MND stole into our lives before losing its grip later on the same year. I hope that you will read my words and will understand my need to have written them.
I am on my journey with my second book. From fact to fantasy..
