Feathery clouds drifted across the cerulean sky and a trio of red kites wheeled above the neighbour's garden. Mid-morning sunlight poured into the bedroom and splashed across the bed. The writer stretched her toes towards the light and felt its warmth seeping through her skin. She closed her eyes and listened to the empty-house sounds: the hum of her computer, the gurgle of the water heater, a whisper of wind outside the window ... She smiled, opened her eyes and began to write.

I am a writer, editor, personal trainer and dance teacher, living in Oxfordshire with my husband and my two beautiful girls, aged five and one.

 

I write for the same reason I read – to escape, to go on adventures, to discover hidden mysteries, to learn about magic, and to fall in love again! Through books and stories, I can imagine what it might feel like to be able to fly or breathe under water; what life would be like if I had been born in a different country, a different time or even in a different universe; I can imagine what it might be like to come face to face with a dragon or to discover the secret hiding places of fairies. Through the magic of story-telling, the world we live in can expand until there are no boundaries and nothing is impossible.

 

Aside from reading, writing and telling stories, I also love exercise: dancing, running, swimming,  yoga, pilates, netball ... You name it! If it involves running, jumping or stretching, I can't get enough of it. To read more about my work as a personal trainer and my love of healthy living, take a look at my healthy-living blog, Cloves & Ginger and see my articles on www.mindbodygreen.com.
