I am an Advanced Professional Member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading (CIEP) – formerly the Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP) – and I adhere to their membership codes.
I live in Cwmbran, South Wales, the town where I grew up – a new town surrounded by history, from an Iron Age hill fort (Twmbarlwm), to the Roman remains at Caerleon and Caerwent, and the castles of Gwent. When I was a child, our family outings usually consisted of visits to these places and more; wherever we went we would almost always end up visiting places of historical interest – such as the stately homes of Cheshire and the Brontë Parsonage Museum in Haworth, Yorkshire. This was a habit that I carried on into adulthood; when in Arizona I made sure to visit the site of the gunfight at the O.K. Corral in Tombstone, and in Melbourne, Australia, I visited the Old Melbourne Gaol, where Ned Kelly was hanged.
Following my travels I went on to study archaeology at university and worked as an archaeologist for a while.
I live with my husband and son. When I'm not editing historical fiction (or reading it for pleasure), I enjoy baking, gardening, and practising yoga.
