Photo

I'm the thirteenth child of fifteen children, in the picture I am the baby sat on my mother's knee. Three older brothers had died in infancy before this photo, and two more girls were yet to be born.

The lady on the back row between my two eldest brothers is a sister-in-law

I was an aunty at the age of three.

There are now upwards of 200 descendents of my mum and dad - dad is the one with the dog on his knee. He was born in 1989 and mum in 1905.

Working on my Ninth Novel - Well, Twelth if I count those manuscripts from the early days tucked away in brown paperbags! Must dust them off sometime.

It takes me three months to write my first draft of a novel.

Another month to knock it into shape, then off it goes to my publishers, Pan Macmillan.

They then put it through a stringent editing process.

After that, it is time to choose models for the cover, write blurbs, acknowledgement and dedications, then guess what - off it flys to the shops.

Love my job. Love Writing. Find out more about me at www.authormarywood.com
