Seller Beware:How Not To Sell Your Business, published by Biteback Publishing in 2013, stemmed from selling her first estate agency (consisting of 8 branches) in 2005 to the wrong buyers.

Her real love is writing fiction. She has just completed a trilogy called The Voyagers,and is looking for representation for Book 1, Annie’s Story. This is set in 1913 when two servants sail to Australia ‘to better themselves’.
