Hazel has worked in sixteen jobs, including as a nurse, microwave cookery demonstrator, legal clerk and tour guide. Her recreation time is spent acting (once on television) painting and writing. She loves Italy and has been learning the language for almost twenty years but, sadly, is not yet fluent! Now retired, she joined a creative writing group seven years ago and last year they published an anthology of short stories.
Hazel is a mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She lives in Wiltshire, a few miles from the beautiful city of Bath, and shares her home with two battling cats.
