The Finnish Girl, The Englishman and The Navy Wife are all books based on true events. Ever wondered how I ended up writing a fictional series of books inspired by my own life?

Today is exactly 40 years since I got engaged to a man seven years older than me. I was 16, vulnerable, and he knew this and took advantage of me. Some of what happened is included in my latest book, The Finnish Girl. I shall be raising a glass to myself today, for having had the strength to walk away from that relationship. Cheers! http://amzn.to/27HvBcF

No mention of e-books but I believe the practise of reading novels on smartphones is exploding in India. https://lnkd.in/byaziYw

Bragging rights
It seems I love studying. I have an MSc in Economics from Hanken in Helsinki, MA in Creative Writing from Bath Spa University and I'm Member of Association of Accounting Technicians. My long suffering children are used to their mother having her nose in a book, though these days it's more likely to be a fiction title rather than boring accountancy. Oh, and I've been married to the English sailor over 25 year now. That's worth bragging about if nothing else?
