The heart-warming prequel to Skeoch
This is the account of the author’s eventful and entertaining life up until the momentous decision to move to Scotland recounted in ‘Skeoch’.
The sole survivor of twins, she is brought up in a house haunted by a large Alsatian dog, and works her way through various interesting and madcap jobs which are gradually more and more connected to the world of stage and films and lead her inevitably towards her first encounter with her future husband, Conrad Phillips, lead actor of the series ‘William Tell’.
Theirs is a whirlwind romance culminating in marriage after only 10 weeks. For part of the honeymoon, the groom asks the bride to choose between an extra night in a luxury hotel, or a night in his boat and a non-stick frying pan – she chooses the latter!

This sets the tone for the couple’s married life, where they have to live in cramped accommodation – particularly a problem after the birth of their first daughter – and only get to increase their living space after surreptitious night-time dumping of vast quantities of rubbish hoarded by their landlord.
A holiday travelling through France and thence to Menorca with their young baby gives them the thirst for space and freedom. Thus is born the yearning which leads to the ‘Skeoch’ adventure.
