I'm addicted to writing. I've cut my writing teeth on my other lives as a mother and school teacher - plenty of writing fodder there! And on my other other life as an educational writer - mostly Science and Biology. I write adult and children's fiction. I've written a couple of novels, some children's stories and lots of short stories for adults.
Writing is my therapy! It makes me calm and happy; it forms me into a better person.

The cascade of possibilities increases her irritation with Dana, her selfishness at causing this unnecessary upset. Until she calls the school and learns that Dana hasn’t attended for the entire day. Until her friends assure her they have no idea where she is. Until the police become involved
