Winning a stack of chocolate in a writing competition when I was aged 8yrs was a great incentive to write!

Becky Fleetwood, I am the third of six children and grew up as part of the ‘baby boomer’ generation in the late 1950s and 60s in Birmingham, UK.

 

I met my engineering hubby, Julian, when studying Sociology at the University of Bath, a mix that was always going to make for an interesting life! We have lived in Stockport (North-West, UK) for over thirty years, bringing up our four children and now have four granddaughters to add to the collection.

 

I have worked as a waitress, barmaid, dinner lady, secretary, exams officer and school timetabler and also ran a cub pack. I still run a toddler group at my church, and sing and dance whenever I can. Life has always been at breakneck speed…

My love of writing started when I was only eight, the consequence of winning a lot of chocolate in a Cadburys competition “the life story of a Cocoa Bean”.

 

Bitten by fantasy stories as a student (I stopped going to lectures in order to finish the “Dragonflight” series by Anne McCaffrey) I wanted to write a book in a similar genre with a strong heroine, someone who was intelligent and analytical and did not see the world in black and white. Chroma was born from this.

 

Five years ago, I took a leap of faith, leaving my job in order to write “Chroma”, my first novel, and I commend it to you.

 

Many Books.net made me their author of the day on 19th December. To read the interview please click here:

 

If you do read Chroma, please consider leaving a review on Amazon and/or Goodreads - the reviews are the life blood of authors. Thank you.
