My Bio Born and raised in the UK, I then lived in South Africa for twenty years. Now in the Netherlands, I live on the water in a 113 year old barge. I am the mother of two lovely girls, the companion of one dear Dutchman and the be all and end all of my wonderful neurotic pootch, Sindy. I teach and train students in Academic and Business English for a living, but write for love. I also have three other books published, details of which can be found on my website; www.rivergirl.nu. I am in the process of writing a fourth book, which is my second novel.

Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
a child growing up on a barge. In fact it's in progress now, and is developing into an exciting adventure story revolving round the waterways of Belgium and Northern France.
Everyone needs to know about these authors and artists...
