I was born in West Sussex and have lived here ever since. For nearly twenty seven years I worked in a solicitor's office, before deciding that enough was enough and looking for a change of career. I now work part-time as a secretary and during the season I am a guide at Arundel Castle. I have also started writing novels, with my first two, "McArthur's Country House Hotel" and "The Stuffed Giraffe's Head" being available via Amazon. Hopefully my third novel will be available this winter or next spring. My hobbies include photography, reading, languages and history.
