I’ve always loved words. Ever since I was very young I’ve been reading books and writing stories. I lived opposite a library and it was pretty much heaven to me to go there and read for hours on end. My sister, Jo, looks happier about the brown bobble hat than I seem to be.
I read anything and everything. When I wasn’t reading I made other people read to me. My mother is reading me a lovely bedtime story here as she smokes a cigarette. This is what people did in the Seventies.
I tried pretty hard with my costumes and turnip lanterns…
but I ended up being this and finding all the magic I needed in books!

Born in Cardiff . Grew up in Llantrisant. Now live by the sea in Saundersfoot.
I come from a working class background and was the first person in my family to go to university. I got an MA in Creative and Media Writing with Distinction from Swansea University.
I fell off the stage once in a show for the royal family and landed in an audience member’s lap… but we don’t talk about that.
Lives for the sea, love, kindness, repeats of ‘Murder She Wrote’, for as long as can.
