The Story Behind The Story

I’ve loved animals since I “adopted” a neighbours cat when I was five. (She got very fat eating in two houses until Mum found out she wasn’t a stray!) Years later, when I learned to ride horses, I discovered that people hunted foxes for fun. According to them, they were controlling foxes that kill farmers’ livestock, but if that was true, why did they protect the foxes’ setts and stop killing them when the vixens were breeding? Research showed more cruelty, and these people didn’t pretend to be helping! They boasted about how many wild animals they’d killed – some of them endangered species – and their “good bag” of birds. I joined societies fighting against this, and I donated money, but I wanted to do more. How could I persuade people it was wrong when so many others couldn’t?

I based my first romantic novel partly on a girl who was born on a shooting estate, and the research on it was so harrowing I donate 100% of my royalties from all my books to organisations helping animals all over the world. The romantic thread of the novel is based on my showbiz experience, which is probably why it has won awards, but the subtle message is in a story designed to have wide appeal. if you’d like to read it, you can find it by clicking on the cover. If you have Kindle Unlimited, do use it. Page reads count towards royalties, so you will be helping protect animals for future generations.
