I was born in Edinburgh to Scottish/Italian parents I had various jobs including being a bacteriology laboratory technician, a model and running a successful business with my husband. I have three grown up children and I used to have a cat, a dog and a 14ft dinosaur called Archibald, but they all left home when the kids did. I never even considered that I could be a writer but now I couldn't imagine doing anything else. I enjoy painting and walking and I love to travel. It is a particular delight to know that my books are being read by children all over the world. I recently stepped down from the committee of the Society of Authors in Scotland and I currently represent the Society of Authors on the Literature Forum for Scotland.
