For as long as I can remember I have written stories. When I was a very small child I could not imagine being anything other than a writer when I grew up. Being painfully dyslexic did not deter me although it certainly detered my teachers! I discovered history when I had to teach it to my own children. The last thirty or so years have been too full of bringing up my children (and telling them stories) to have time to write down much for anyone else but now . . .
