Married to DH David for 26 years, 2 teenagers in High School, university lecturer in organisational behaviour, and a doctoral student, and now a part time author.

Discovered JA's work thanks to the 1940's version of P&P, then went and bought the books, and the rest is history.
Introduced to DWG by the lovely Sybil, where I posted a story commenced for BOI but finishd for DWG.

Started writing for my own enjoyment, my family thought me mad (and still do), but fortunately the kind folk here think this is normal, so I am in the process of writing some follow ups.

Find the reading and writing a great mental break from studies, and a great place to make new friends.
