I have just finished my debut novel "Going Up and Going Down" and I plan to have the sequel, "Comings and Goings" published by the end of July 2014.
I have been happily married to Graham for the last eight years and I have a son and daughter from a previous marriage. I am also Nana to Jamie, Kyle and Kacey who are absolutely adorable.
Since leaving school I took exams in accountancy and have been a Company Accountant for quite a number of years. I have always known, since leaving school, that I would write a novel one day and I've done it at last. I have loved every minute of the last few months and although it is hard to have a full-time job and then come home to start writing, I wouldn't swap it for anything. Writing is my life now.
I have many hobbies; reading, cryptic crosswords, suduko and playing chess with my hubby. Before I started writing I used to play badminton once a week and the occasional game of tennis in the summer. I also enjoy writing poetry, but that is usually just for my own amusement.
I adore travel. Having visited most of the countries in Europe, I aim on seeing as much of the rest of the world as I can. I have been to the US, Canada, Barbados and Cuba, Singapore and Bali, and of the African Countries, I have visited Tunisia and Egypt! Still lots to see and do.
Going Up and Going Down
Helen Pawson is intelligent, well-spoken, beautiful, dark-haired, and at 5ft 10in she has a figure to die for. She has had a very privileged upbringing with the most loving and attentive parents. Attending private school, she learned to appreciate the finer things in life, classical music, art and literature. She has had so much, and has wanted for nothing - or has she?
Why did she suddenly drop out of University? What traumatic circumstances in her life have contributed to the mental illness she fights to control? Married for two years, why did she ditch her career in accountancy to become a hotel chambermaid - without her husband's knowledge? How did that lowly job lead her into her sideline - earning big money as a high class call girl, attending to the mostly perverted, needs of her clients - the very rich and famous, including film stars, politicians, celebrities and businessmen?
Her loveless marriage has brought her nothing but hurt, mistrust, and embarrassment, but she soon discovers her husband's dark secrets, and one in particular, for which Helen will never forgive him! She remains in the marital home for one reason only - to keep the enemy close, wait, observe, and when the opportunity presents itself.....exact her revenge!
