Welcome to my blog Adventures in Fiction.
I live sometimes in Nice (a very nice place to write) and sometimes in London (a very nice place to meet people).
In a previous life, I marketed food brands: Sharwood’s curries, Cadbury Frozen Gateaus, Herta Frankfurters and Buitoni pasta sauces, to name but a few.
I never went hungry!
Then for a while, I was a press officer for The National Childbirth Trust and wrote freelance articles for family and lifestyle magazines.
Now I write picture books, and sometimes older children’s fiction, including YA.
Check out my publications page!
I have oodles of ideas, I wish I had the time to write them all.
This blog features some of the great and inspiring people I meet in person and online (agents, authors, publishers, fellow writers and bloggers) and a whole lot of writing knowhow I’ve picked up along the way from courses at the London School of Journalism, Curtis Brown Creative, ‘how to’ books, SCBWI, festivals and seminars.
PS. I love comments!
