I didn’t start out to be a writer. But I have always been a voracious reader. An activity which my father encouraged and my mother discouraged because she knew all too well if left to my own devices I wouldn’t do anything else!
Although born in the U.S., I hold dual US/UK citizenship through my Scottish father and English born mother. Originally from the Pacific Northwest, near Seattle, I was very lucky to spend summers in Scotland with one set of grandparents or in Winnipeg, Manitoba with the other set.
