I don’t do bios, because I’m the most boring person I know. I like horses, dogs and books and that’s about it.
I never intended to be a writer. One day I arrived at the stables where I’d worked happily for 6 years to be dragged across the yard by the owner who was over six foot & built (well like someone used to manual work), shouted at incoherently for half an hour and sacked. When I returned the next day (I stabled 3 of my own horses there) the owner, without any apology said he MAY have acted on the lies of someone else (I still have no idea what I was supposed to have done) would I like my job back. From nowhere, I replied, “Nah, I’m writing a book,” with the intention of moving my horses and getting the hell out of there.
Good old Sod’s Law kicked in. My favourite pony seriously injured her check ligament (an important tendon in her leg). The vets confirmed she had to be kept as still and quiet as possible for 8 months. So, I was stuck there with daily taunts of how’s the book going? I stomped home and said, “How do you put words on the computer? I need to write a book.” That book was The Skeletons of Birkbury which I wrote & published in those 8 months with zero knowledge. I didn’t even have a Facebook account. I know I could improve that book, but to be fair, despite the occasional 1 star review it does continue to sell just the way it is!
