About the author:
My grammar should be pretty good (most of the time!)
What inspired you to write your book?
I spent 8 years teaching English as a Foreign Language to International Military Students, during which time, there was never a dull moment!
Here is a short sample from the book:
Week 1: Monday 7 September
New term. New Intake. New OFFICERS…
I wonder if he’s arrived yet. Maria, my clairvoyant told me in no uncertain terms that I was finally going to meet Mr Right this year.
We’re going to be friends first. (No shagging on the first date!)
He’s going to stimulate me mentally. (Does that mean no shagging at all?)
Bugger – she never said how long we have to be friends for first!
My internal ramblings are cut short by the car ferry’s arrival in Dartmouth – probably a blessing really. I don’t want to be reminded of exactly how long it’s been since my last carnal adventure – wasn’t really an adventure at all actually; there’s a lot of truth in the saying that ‘officers have more mouth than trousers’!
Still, I promised myself when I started working at Britannia Royal Naval College – the Royal Navy’s premier training establishment – that I would eventually become that most envied of creatures – an officer’s wife!
I might be divorced and in my mid 40s, but it doesn’t mean I’ve given up on romance – I’ve seen Officer and a Gentleman…!
