I'm English but I live in the Aude region of southern France. I’ve created marketing communications all of my working life, and since 2002 I have been a freelance copywriter. In my time I've written just about every kind of marketing material, but it was not until the age of 67 that I became a published novelist..
I wrote the first draft of my novel King’s Ransom in 1994, but although my family and friends liked it, I couldn’t find a publisher, so the novel went into the bottom drawer until my son suggested that I revise and self-publish it as an eBook. That’s what I did in April 2013.
