A Fresh Start

I cannot believe I have my own office! We did have one  in our old house but I shared it with my boyfriend. This meant also sharing the space with his piles of photography magazines,  paperwork, bits’n’bobs, odds’n’sods and unshredded addresses. I cannot work in a mess so my first novel was written on my little net book on my dressing table.  2012-11-11 13.44.34

This week I have been ploughing through boxes to decide what I want in my office and what I can do without. A fresh start is great but let me warn you … it takes bloomin’ ages!  I have managed to go through every folder to see what is essential. After five days,  I am left with, three full boxes to go into the loft and two large bags of recycling. IMAG1709

I have also bought pretty folders and boxes which match the decor.  There is no reason I can’t be stylish whilst working – talking of which, I am about to start getting some actual writing done today and I can’t wait.



I have been a Personal Trainer for about 23 years and I still love training and the buzz it gives me but writing has always been a part of my life. I think I wrote my first book at the age of 10. My grandmother said I would be a novelist one day and she was right - as all grandmothers often are! I live with my boyfriend Carl, we have 2 huskies who make us laugh every day, except when pulling us into bushes to chase after squirrels! I have also written a Diet and Fitness book for women over 40.
