Questions from

  1.  Growing up, were you closer to your mother or father, or was it a balance of both depending on the circumstances?

I was closer to my dad, the typical daddy’s girl. I used to sit and listen to his war stories, and as a child memorised all the WW1 battles, so much so, History at school was my favourite subject. He was always there for me, especially when I finally told him about the bullying I suffered as a child. He died when I was seventeen, it was then I grew close to Mum. We both missed him, in our own way. We did a lot of talking, and we were similar, even if I didn’t want to admit it.

  1.  What was your favourite toy as a child, and do you still have it? One of my favourite toys was a petite, pink typewriter I was brought when I was eight. I was also given a baby tears that year.
  2.   Did you have any secrets? We all do.
  3.   What did you want to be when you grew up, and are you anywhere close? I wanted to be an actress and a singer. I cannot act or sing, so that was never going to happen. I have always wanted to write.

I am a fifty something mother of two grown up children, and one beautiful grandchild. I have been married for nearly thirty-four years. My first book was published ten years ago. I wrote my book Sticks and Stones because of my experience of being bullied at school.

    1. My dad was in his fifties when I was born, and he had an older brother, who was ten years older, so a lot of that was from his viewpoint. My dad was a paratrooper in the second world war, his brother fought in the first world war, underage, when he was sixteen.
