I am delighted to announce that my novel Tangled Love, set in Queen Anne's reign, 1702-1714 has been shortlisted at The Festival of Romance. The results will be announced on the 17th November at the gala ball in Bedford.
I was fortunate to be born and brought up in the South East of England. This area with its varied countryside, towns and places of interest inspired the locations in my novel, Tangled Hearts.
Today, I live in Hertfordshire. When I look up from my computer I have a view of my organic garden in which I grow fruit, herbs and vegetables; beyond the hedge is a green and beyond that woodland that has survived since mediaeval times. In good weather, I sit outside and work on my laptop drawing inspiration from the peaceful surrounding.
I’ve always enjoyed reading historical novels and historical non-fiction and am so pleased to have a novel set in Queen Anne's reign accepted. Whenever I mention Queen Anne, most people are uncertain and want to know who she was, so, I hope you will find Tangled Hearts interesting.
Time spent with my family, who live near me in Hertfordshire, England, is precious and my grandchildren share most of my interests. One of them, a six year old, is keen to help me write my next novel for you.
