I was born in Reigate, the daughter of the photographer John Erith, and began life as a happy child in the countryside. After surviving a girls’ public school and coming to terms with severe health problems, I went on to achieve a graphics Diploma at art school. This gave an entry to equine and human portraiture and strengthened my interest in character and likeness.
My work also includes a double portrait of the eminent dentist who discovered the significance of fluoride, and a first-day cover which printed a quarter of a million. I also illustrate work freelance in music publicity.
Woven throughout my life has been an abiding passion for music. My love of music led to the love of my life and a Valentine’s Day happy marriage to the distinguished producer of classical recordings, John Boyden, whose unwavering belief in me opened the gateway to submitting my first manuscript for publication: “Mary Florida”. I have secretly scribbled throughout my life, writing stories, and eventually completing this one. But I didn't dare hope anything of mine would ever be published, until John emboldened me to contemplate such a thing.
"Mary Florida" was accepted by the first Publisher I approached, and I proudly proclaim my novel “a Romance” replete with a reinvented hero!
At last I have found personal and professional fulfilment.
