She began writing at her husband's suggestion; until then she had been a voracious reader of romantic novels by such writers as Kathryn Blair, Anne Mather and Jane Donnelly. At that time she was living in Felixstowe with her three children and wrote her first book, Love in a Mist, for the publishers Robert Hale in three days.

It has gone from strength to strength.
