INFORMATION
I am British, but live in the East of France. I started to write on a daily basis at age seven, when keeping a diary became compulsory in my primary school. This training perhaps explains why I find it easier to write facts creatively rather than out-and-out fiction. However, I have a great love of words and the mechanics of writing, and ten years ago I began to keep a second diary, filled with untruths. This has served me well in the parallel fictional world where I reside.

I am unsure whether my relationship with words derives from, or propels, my day-job as a terminological translator. All my most important hobbies are linked to words, or are artistic. Writing is way at the top of the list, but I also enjoy playing scrabble, in both English and French, and draw and paint illustrations to accompany my writing efforts. I also have a deep love affair with gardens and old boats.

I write for my children, and for my grandchild (hopefully the first of many!). These members of my family all bring me great joy.

    Katherine M. Kean: I want to thank those who voted for me, and made this possible.
    I am also particularly grateful to the reviewers who advised me concerning the vagaries of my SPAGs, and especially SallyO who by discussing a plot problem revealed a serious lapse in tense consistensy, and giraffmang who took things further in this vein (unfortunately I haven'tyet had time to deal with his invaluable suggestions, so the errors in this version are all my own - but I will get onto it before I let it out to air again)
    Thanks to you all
