I was born and educated in rural Shropshire, and although my career as a nurse and midwife extended through almost three decades – Historical research, like reading fiction and writing, was always my passion. The Linmore Series was already in draft form when I undertook an in-depth study of my Shropshire family genealogy – from which the writing process benefitted enormously – as it did from elements of Poldark and Jane Eyre, my favourite book, and drew parallels from Georgette Heyer’s book A Civil Contract.

I once read that Catherine Cookson said that she knew when she had a good story because it would not leave her alone. That is why I feel that the Linmore stories want to be told.
