About This Author

I was born in France in 1937, of a Russian mother and a Scottish father, and came to England in the first years of the war. We came by ship from Marseilles to Liverpool to avoid the U- boats in the channel. All I wanted to do at school was to read books and write stories. I took this up again when I retired from a career in teaching and social work. In 2003 I moved from the South of England to Darlington, and have become very attached to the North East. I obtained an M.A. in creative writing from Tees-side University in 2010, and 'The New Rector', one of my short stories, came third in the 2013 Shildon Short Story competition. I have three children and four grandchildren ranging from 3 weeks to 25 years.
