I was born in Cambridge and have lived in Ipswich with Paul, my husband, since 2006. I studied French and History at Warwick University. My working life was mainly spent with a small research company in Coventry, followed by several years as an administrator for the National Autistic Society in Suffolk.
I started exploring my family history in the late 1990s and graduated onto other areas of historical research when I came to Ipswich and met historian, Sheila Hardy. I did masses of background research for several of her published books. Then the chance to write two books of my own came along, followed by research for friends and family, and later for people I didn't even know!
