Away with the Fairies...

I could read and write before I could walk - and that is still the case today 43 years later!

I was born with Spina Bifida and right from the start, I loved to escape the realities of my situation by immersing myself in the fantasy world I created in my head.

I often put pen to paper and wrote stories which I read aloud as entertainment for family and friends. But it was only when I became a mom that I started to think seriously about publishing my work.


I'd worked, I'd traveled and I'd partied..... now I was content with my family life, but I still had so much creativity just bursting to come out.


I finally brought my first book to life in 2015, in order to raise money for a little girl with cancer - (she is alive, fully healed and well today!) and I haven't looked back since.

The ideas kept coming and sometimes I can't keep up with my own imagination! My family have got used to me writing at very unsociable hours, and stopping in the middle of doing something to note an idea!


The Fairies on Canglford Nock are as precious to me as my family - they were born from watching my children and their friends playing together. In Tales on "Canglford Nock Vol 1 & 2" Each character is based on a real person and every story contains a moral or life lesson.
