I'm a wife & a mother
Although I'm English, I was born in Malaysia. I now have three daughters of my own, born in three different countries, in three different languages! All I know is, yelling "EPIDURAL!" worked everywhere.
I was married in 1991, after meeting my husband at Barajas Airport in Madrid, Should have taken meeting in an airport as a sign of things to come! We have moved country every 3 years of our married life, except for 6 years in France. And we've spent a lot of time on planes. Oh the joy of entertaining three small children on a 14 hour flight!
I am an original Third Culture Kid. It's always a bit confusing and the best way I've seen of dealing with it was one school which asked the kids to come to school dressed as the country they were born in. They all knew that!
I'm a traveller & a friend
You really need friends in life. Sometimes more than you need family.
I recently had a surprise 50th birthday party and was so happy that 50 of my closest friends could make it. There were people there who I've known since I was in the womb, as well as friends I've made along the way - from London, Spain, Argentina & France.
The only shame is that a lot of the friends I've made live a long way away from me now :( But they knew I wished they could have been there too!
There's always room for more friends, so like my Facebook page or send me an email and get connected. I want to hear your story too.
I'm a writer
I've always loved writing and started writing a novel the first day my youngest daughter went to school. It took about 18 months, but I finished it :-) I finally self-published Love, Lies & Latinos on Kindle last year. It's a fun read, a romcom, chicklit beach book, so don't expect literary heights - but do expect to laugh!
In 2013 I started a 2 year Masters in Scriptwriting and have been continuing writing scripts since I moved back to the UK. Yet to sell any!
