I had a career in marketing working in financial services and the leisure industries including Friends Reunited in their heyday. The highlight for me was The Caravan Club at East Grinstead where I had the pleasure of working with some very interesting characters. I left that world to set up a social events business which whilst rewarding was very demanding of my time and eventually I decided to move on.
By then I had started writing novels and had published Unlikely Neighbours. I went on to write and publish Forever Lucky and the sequel, Birch and Beyond. My last book, as yet unpublished, is called The Disenchanted Hero and tells the life stories of my husband's parents going back to World War two.
I moved to Monks Eleigh in 2016 and have been very impressed with its strong community spirit. I think the new village hall is going to be a wonderful asset and am really chuffed to be a part of helping the hall to be a great success.
