okay, I know that most author pages and bios are ‘supposed’ to be fairly formal and written in the third person. But whenever I try to do that, I always come across as being stuffy and pompous.. so this is me…(at a halloween party)



I published my first print book back in 2007 after I came back to the UK from a decade of living on the land in France. The inspiration for Grow Your own Pharmacy came from the whole family having had no antibiotics in all that time.


After that I got the writing bug. It had stirred in me during childhood, but didn’t really explode until much later. And I have to admit to being reluctant to call myself an author; I feel that I’m simply sharing my own experiences and learning curves with as many people as possible to help them live a happier healthier lifestyle.

And that is so much fun!

Being of the human species, I get locked into projects and behave in a very unhealthy way sometimes… often drinking tea to keep me awake when its already 3am – because I just have to finish what I’m doing. Perhaps that makes me a bit of a control freak who loses the plot from time to time? Who knows…. and really, does anyone care 🙂

I love to share the good things in life and I hope you have a wonderful time browsing the healthy living books and my random blog posts.

Here’s to your good health!

P.s. On a purely personal note, I’m a mother of four grown ups and granny to five grandchildren. My eldest grandson is doing a horticulture course at The Eden project in Cornwall. If you haven’t visited The Eden project, put it on your to-do list. It’s fabulous!
