This is me, then. I have a husband, Pete, and two sons, Jordan and Cameron, who now live proper adult lives away from home, though we see them often. We had two dogs, called Dufus and Kerrang (don’t get your kids to name your dogs). We have only the last one left and he is 16, a very old gentleman in dog terms. The basset fauve de Bretagne is a dog that is both dozy and opinionated. He’s softened in his old age – well, basically he has dementia, which involves a lot of staring at the wall and being bemused by most things. (I’m sure I’ll be the same eventually.) I love writing. Although I have to fit other things into my life, given the choice I would just be writing. Or drinking champagne. I write books, film scripts and plays. And you can find out about all that somewhere here on this blog.
