I am a writer, editor, personal trainer and dance teacher, living in Oxfordshire with my husband and my two beautiful girls, aged five and one.
I write for the same reason I read – to escape, to go on adventures, to discover hidden mysteries, to learn about magic, and to fall in love again! Through books and stories, I can imagine what it might feel like to be able to fly or breathe under water; what life would be like if I had been born in a different country, a different time or even in a different universe; I can imagine what it might be like to come face to face with a dragon or to discover the secret hiding places of fairies. Through the magic of story-telling, the world we live in can expand until there are no boundaries and nothing is impossible.
Aside from reading, writing and telling stories, I also love exercise: dancing, running, swimming, yoga, pilates, netball ... You name it! If it involves running, jumping or stretching, I can't get enough of it. To read more about my work as a personal trainer and my love of healthy living, take a look at my healthy-living blog, Cloves & Ginger and see my articles on www.mindbodygreen.com.
