But before we talk about her story, let’s get to know her a little better!
- Tea or wine? Depends what day of the week it is! Tea during the week, wine at weekend!

- Cats or dogs? Oh dear, I have both. Cannot favour one more than the other!
- Heels or flats? Flats, heels are my nightmare.
- Boxers or briefs? I guess briefs.
- Milk, dark or white chocolate? Milk and as much as you want to give me is fine!
- Sweet or savoury? Sweet. My downfall is home-made cake and meringue!
- Sea or mountains? Mountains. I live in North Wales and surrounded by Mynydd (Welsh for mountain.) Also, my maiden name was ‘Mountain’ so …!
B. Five likes and five dislikes:

‘Echoes’ was first brought to life over eighteen years ago following the death of our son. I was doodling in the kitchen trying to get through the day when I began writing a story, that over the following weeks turned into a book. I left it for many years, but it would be found and worked on and rejected and replaced back in the drawer until 2012. I self-published it and it was awarded an Honourable Mention in the New England book festival 2012. The following year it won the e-book category in Paris and awarded another Honourable Mention in the London book awards 2014. Christine Anderson publishing took it on last year.
Bronwen Mortimer, a young, mysterious woman, moves to the quiet village of Derwen, near Shrewsbury, England, in the hope of starting a new life following years of abuse; but the echoes of the land refuse to lie quietly and when she witnesses a terrifying murder, Bronwen must face her past and win, to have any chance of living in the present.
Moving between present day and fifteenth century England, when Henry Tudor claimed the throne at Bosworth. There were many casualties of war, but some will not be forgotten.
