My name is Denise Buckley. I live in the English Lake District, but I was born near Manchester. I have had two novels published: ‘Yesterday’s Tomorrows: The Dark Secret’ & ‘Heroes Don’t Cry.’ I have written another novel but as yet it is lying dormant as I would like to find another agent.
When the last of my four children flew the nest, I found I had time to do whatever I wanted to do. I started writing when I found classes on Creative Writing in the town. When the class finished, some of us began meeting each other. We eventually rented a room where we met, had coffee, a laugh, and helped each other plus anyone who cared to join us. Some of us are now authors, and I have found it very rewarding.
Learning to use a computer, I became fascinated to find I had the world at my fingertips. I could do my research at home in comfort without having to face the weather.
I have worked at many places. Anything that would fit in with the children, and they have all done well in their chosen professions.
How I wish I had started writing sooner.
