What do you do for a day job?

My day job…

As well as being the single Mum of two boys aged 10 and 12, I also work as business manager for a small business. This involves bookkeeping, accounts, as well as some social media on behalf of clients, and anything else that comes across my desk.

It’s a good job as it’s school hours, so I still get to do “Mum Stuff” after school, such as taking the kids to after school activities and supervising their homework.

Being able to still spend a lot of time with my kids gives me a lot of inspiration for stories!
