When I’m not writing
I belong to three hometowns – Bradford, Harrogate and Leeds, where I have lived since coming to university in the 90s. Brief spells in Australia and Germany as an army child gave me itchy feet. I soothe these and my chronic health issues regularly in the Yorkshire rivers and lakes where I swim. I also have an affinity for the sea, woodland, and old industrial buildings set in moorland.
I campaign regularly on social justice and sustainability issues and am mum to a grown-up son. My husband tells me I am funniest after nine pm, which is a shame because by then I’m usually in bed reading one of at least twelve books on my bedside table – like most writers, I’m greedy for many types of reading material. You can find some of them on my textual appraisals page.
