About Me 

I was born in London in 1968 and have lived here ever since, which makes me sound very unadventurous.  I was the kind of child who always had their nose buried in a book and you can see some of my favourites below.

I enjoyed creative writing at school and always wrote for fun as a grown up but it didn't really occur to me that it could ever be a career.  It was only after having my own children and reading a lot of books that I plucked up the courage to write professionally.   And now I get to do it every day!     

If you have more questions - for a book review or if you are just nosy - feel free to  email me on deedeederota@gmail.com   

So this is me aged about seven.  Didn’t I have incredibly small teeth?  


Thank goodness I lost that lot and got some normal sized ones ...
