I've been a member of Fanstory since 2011, and it's been an amazing journey. I've made so many friends on here and learned a lot. I started out as a poet, my first love. It was while doing this that I began taking an interest in children's stories, written in rhyme. When I had my first book, Hedgerow Capers, snapped up by a publisher, I was elated. I now have seven children's books published.

I wanted to spread my wings and began writing prose. My first book, This Time- That Time, was chosen as the book of the month seven times in 2016, which gobsmacked me! I was so proud. Then to receive the FanStory trophy of third-ranked novelist for that year, just about made my life! The second book in the trilogy, Beyond That Time, has not been published, and the final one is almost finished. Will update when it is.

All I can say is a big thank you to all my friends on here for the help and support you've given me since I joined, without you, I wouldn't have got this far.
