Chris has always enjoyed words, books and writing for as long as she can remember. Having been brought up in a family which did not possess a television, she was well used to making her own entertainment and with a very fertile imagination and a preference for her own company, she immersed herself in the world of make-believe and fantasy.
Throughout Chris’ school life she developed a great love and respect for the written word and reading and writing featured right at the top of her favourites list. Hardly surprising that her career took her into working with English and led her to some very interesting Executive P.A. posts in several major well-known companies.
After a career break to have her family, Chris went back to work part-time and after training changed disciplines to work as an Independent Financial Adviser. It was during this time that she received the inspiration for writing The Cones.
Chris spent many a long hour on the M1 motorway with her husband Keith as they travelled from their main office in Bradford to their company’s branch office in Hertfordshire and guess what happened? Yes, they sat in road works surrounded by miles and miles of CONES! Thus, the ‘conecept’ of Cones coming alive and having adventures was born.
