I come from the North of England the county of Yorkshire, home to the Bronte sisters. A rugged landscape for a tough spirited character! I now reside in the East of England an area known as the Fenlands a landscape equally as windswept as Yorkshire but in contrast very flat we get mini-tornadoes even in winter!
My former career was as a software developer and IT systems analyst, which entailed being concise and thorough, could be tedious as repetition came with the essential checking of all work, at times It carried an enormous responsibility.
These disciplines have been transferred to the world of book publishing
I have been writing mystery/suspense/thrillers for six years. Currently on my 12th novel. My writing is suitable for ages 14+ The style is quintessentially British, gentle, sometimes classified cosy. The female and male characters are strong, realistically inclined people with emotional issues. The plots tend to twist and situations often move on with a good pace and start accelerating to a climax at the story's conclusion.
