As you may have guessed, I’m a very keen gardener. My grandparents all were too and encouraged me to sow seeds and tend plants from a young age. For that reason I’ve dedicated this book to their memory.
I know my grandparents were pleased I shared their passion for gardening. I’m sure they’d have been pleased too that I became a writer, especially Granny and Grandma who were regular readers of some of the magazines which now publish my stories.
Sadly they never got to see my work in print, but in a way they’re still with me when I’m nurturing the plants they loved – my happy memories of them linger in the garden air.
