Author has written 9 stories for Downton Abbey.

Not the most gifted author, just sharing what goes on in my head. What's the point of writing if you don't share?

Love Downton Abbey, favourite character is Mr Bates. Don't really have a favourite ship, just Bates/everyone else really.

Other than Downton, I like football and follow Southampton. Not very interesting but what I've written here is me in a nutshell. :)
