Born in Hull, brought up in the Midlands, went to Leeds University and have lived in East Devon for over 30 years. I have three grown-up daughters and three grandchildren. I taught English in a comprehensive school until 2010, when I retired early from teaching after losing patience with the bureaucracy and nonsense, but haven't found anything else to do yet that brings in any money. I continue to read vast quantities of fiction of most kinds but I can't stand romance or chick-lit.
