I was born in Tooting in February 1939 and spent all the war in London, except the last six months, when I went to stay with my father, who worked for HMS Vernon in a secret shore establishment near Havant in Hampshire.

I went to school in Streatham, then attended the Central School of Speech and Drama. I married a GP in 1962 and moved to Dulwich. In 1970 I entered Goldsmiths to read English, and then did an MA at Queen Mary College. After this I qualified as a nursery teacher, and a librarian and worked for Southwark Libraries. I completed a probationary teaching year in Tower Hamlets and then taught in nurseries and comprehensive schools in Essex and Suffolk. I became the first librarian of Otley College of Agriculture and Horticulture ( near Ipswich) in 1992 until I retired, and have since worked as an indexer and have written several books on agriculture and local history. I am currently living in a Suffolk village and attending classes in Anglo Saxon history at Sutton Hoo while completing a City and Guilds level 3 course in Machine Embroidery.

I divorced in 1986, and have two sons and three grandchildren.
