Having worked as an administrator and secretary for many years I finally decided to pursue my passion for writing. Having dabbled with a blog for several years last October I decided to concentrate on this aspect of my career. Ever since I have regularly been invited to events and sent items to review on my blog www.themiddlesister.co.uk. I have written for Local Secrets a local on-line magazine and collaborated with Cambridge Style Week for several years. I have discovered a love of photography and also wish to pursue this as a career option.
