...the time I was almost recruited for MI6 by Simon Cowell. A short, narrative introduction to me and my joyful, ambling path.
Through all of this, I constantly used writing to process my experience of the world. I turned life into stories, published some of them, had others performed and maintained absolutely no idea of what I wanted to be when I grew up.
I wrote a children's book, then raised the money to have it illustrated and published; people like it and The Girl Who Could See Stories is still for sale via my brand Real Magic Publishing.
I spent, and continue to spend, a considerable amount of time on adventures, both to other parts of the world and into my own consciousness, which can be equally as exciting and unexpected (if not more so).
Now I know what I want to be, today, tomorrow and whenever I eventually grow up. I want to be happy, peaceful and helpful. I feel all three of those things for at least a few moments every day, mostly thanks to my dog and my wonderful partner. I also experience them through my work, which I'd more accurately describe as my passion because I'll carry on doing it whether people pay me to or not (just don't tell my inner marketing director that I said that, ok?).
You can read more about what I actually do on every other page of this website, so I won't go into that here. Here, I'll share this picture of my dog instead. She's pretty great.
MI6 is yet to come calling.
