Congratulations! You appear to have made it past the home page and are sufficiently curious to look at some words about who I am and why I’m here.

I live in Surrey with my gorgeous husband, two grown up sons (one is living it up at uni and the other is desperately clawing at the door of independence) and a very excitable snuggle monster / treat snaffler called Charlie Bear.

I’m a prolific reader and enjoy writing so I’m planning on putting some book reviews here as well as some other bits and pieces. I also love photography, musicals, afternoon tea and ice hockey.

Last, but absolutely by no means least I enjoy being creative.  Having won a short story competition a few years ago I was inspired to write and self publish a novel and recently received some super exciting feedback from a ‘proper’ publisher.  Sometime soon (possibly/maybe) when I get my act together fully I’ll embark on writing a new novel with the aim of being mainstream published.

So thats what I’m about and what you can expect to find on the pages of Off On A Tangent. Don’t run off, stay a while ….

Wishing you loveliness in abundance for even reading this much …. x
