Let's Get Introduced!
You really want to know more about me??? Oh, all right then...
I was born on June 30, 1950 - half way through the year that marked half-way through the last century. So that makes me incredibly old, I hear you say. I have two grown up kids and two (nearly grown-up) grandchildren. Our daughter has done her duty, but I'm waiting patiently for our son to perform. (Any single girls in their mid-to-late thirties out there...?) And I've been married for 41 years to the same guy.
I've had a varied life, having been in the military for a few years, before going on to work for the British Ministry of Defence in London as a civilian. Then I had myself re-educated back at University, where I got myself a couple of degrees (in Geography, with a Master's in History). I still have an active interest in Anglo-Saxon and medieval history, and I've written a couple of books on the subject which I'm slowly preparing for publication.
After that, I was employed by a major U.S. law firm to manage the administration of their London office. I was there for over twelve years and supervised the enlargement of the practice... and saw a lot of interesting things going on, which have given me the inspiration to write a lot of my books. Then, to fill in the fifteen years before I hit my sixtieth birthday, I worked as a management consultant.
And now let's talk about erotic romance. I still love sex - the good news is that there really is life after menopause - and although I may not have the energy to do a lot of the more ambitious things that young people do, I still enjoy writing about it, and one of the big pleasures for me is that my readership spreads right the way round the world.
I should mention here that I also write fetish fiction as C.P. Waterman - my blog is at http://waterlines-stories.blogspot.co.uk/ if you want to check it out. I've been spending more time writing in that genre recently - but, after my current work in progress there is finished, I'll be back to complete a number of stories I started in erotic romance.
Regrets? I'd like to see my daughter and her children more often. I've wasted a lot of time in my earlier years, and I made some very unwise financial decisions so I'm not as well-off as I'd like to be in this stage of my life. But hey, let's not get ourselves miserable here. Life has been good to me - and some pleasant surprises arrived to change things round for me just when I needed something to happen.
Please feel free to write to me any time - I can always find time to respond personally to my readers.
