I battered out my first stories on an old Olivetti typewriter at age eight. Can't remember much about those stories, but they were probably along the lines of Famous Five or Secret Seven books. As a teenager I devoured as many Agatha Christie novels as I could get my hands on. After leaving school I travelled, settled down, had four children, gained a degree in Australian Studies and Literature, ran several small businesses and then eventually found my way back to the typewriter - well, laptop. I have had short stories published in anthologies and online, and this year I am working on my first novel.

Hi Karen! I've just joined this group and you're the first person I've contacted. I, too, loved Enid Blyton as a child. I adored the Famous Five. I'm going to have to read some of those books again. :)
How cool to see you here Karen. How's the writing going? I've scared myself and haven't written anything for about three months now... oh dear. I am starting to think about the mighty novel aain though so...
