A Little More About Me And My Life …
Well, where to start!
I was born in England rather more years ago than I care to remember and am the middle child of three daughters. I get on really well with both my sisters and my parents (and current step-parents!) and thought this was completely normal, until friends told me that this was absolutely not the case for most of the western world!
I was shipped off to boarding school from the age of 11 until 16, and it was during this time, at the tender age of 13, that I met Bug. After an adventurous yet remarkably brief relationship, I didn’t set eyes on him again for over 30 years and now, here I am, married to him and living in California! Our story has been quite unusual and a roller coaster ride of highs and lows. So much so that friends insisted I should write it all down in a book, which would be snapped up by one of the leading publishers and immediately get onto the NY Times bestseller list, followed by a bidding war over the film rights, the blockbuster movie of which would star Brad Pitt and/or George Clooney! Ahh, dream on!
Being the massive people pleaser I am, I dutifully started writing … and loved it! Who knew? I put the first couple of chapters up on Scribd (a fantastic place for writers if you don’t know about it), plus a few other humourous pieces, and in just over a year I have amassed over 46,000 reads! How exciting is that? If you would like to read the first chapter of my memoir Right From The Start, please click here.
