About Me

I'm an ‘Army Brat’, and 55 years young.
I was born in Aldershot and have lived in many houses, in many towns, but all in the UK.
I live in Bolton le Sands, Lancashire with  my cat, Cookie.
I have 3 children and 6 grand-children.

I get a lot of pleasure from being creative, whether I’m drawing, painting, card making, knitting, sewing, or doing any other ‘artistic’ activity. I like trying new crafts, although not always successfully!
You can see some of my crafty efforts on Rainne's Ramblings, Pinterest and Facebook

I’m an avid reader of horror, supernatural/paranormal, mystery/thriller, fantasy and some sci-fi books, and enjoy watching a good film or series of the same genres.

I derive a great deal of satisfaction from my small part in helping to promote Indie Authors and their books, and try to leave reviews for every book I read.

I am honoured to be a part of some awesome Indie Author groups on Facebook and to have made some great friends within those groups.

I also enjoy listening to a variety of music from Aerosmith to ZZ Top.

And I adore David Bowie!!

  1. I was streaming Bowie music when I read that last entry (John, I'm Only Dancing as fate would have it). I thought you might enjoy that added irony, from Erik at theoryofirony.com. In any event, great blog and keep up the good work!

  2. David Bowie is wonderful. I like your page design and the interesting books listed. Looking forward to my blog tour stop here in January.
