Success! You're on the list.

Hello! Thank you for taking the time to visit my website. I am originally from Hertfordshire but have lived in Wales for 21 years now.  My book was published during the first lockdown in 2020 which felt like quite an achievement!

I’d had the idea for the book for a long time, having supported my own son to and through drama school, which wasn’t the easiest process, and I felt it would be helpful to write a book that other parents could refer to, when their own children decide to chase their dream. I bit the bullet and wrote the book and here you are…I hope it serves you well!

By day, I actually work as a school librarian, but I also run a Musical Theatre Academy in Swansea.  Nearly all my interests are arty,  including painting, but I do love a game of scrabble or BackGammon and of course, being able to enjoy the wonderful countryside that South Wales has to offer is always a pleasure!

To join my mailing list, please use the contact form on the left, and I will keep you informed of any major news or indeed details of the next book, once it is published. 

Thanks for visiting!
