About the Author:
I was born and raised in Glasgow, Scotland. I spent most of my childhood playing outside with my brother and my imaginary friends and feasting on my granny's home cooking. I remember the magpie that followed me round my garden one summer and the day my grandpa found the wild bunnies which I had captured and hidden in my bedroom.
After leaving school I went to college and university (part-time) and embarked on a career in the health and safety sector, qualifying in 1993. I met my husband through my work and we have 4 children.
Now I spend my time looking after my family, taking care of our collection of animals (3 dogs, 1 cat, 2 horses, 2 pigs, 3 ferrets and 1 budgie), nurturing our kitchen garden, learning Spanish, speaking Spanish, reading and writing.
