From a Quaker family, I took a biology degree, working in Cambridge, UK, and Stanford, California, in biology, psychology and psychiatry departments. In between I worked on a pig farm, as a hotel maid, an accountant, in catering and retail. I can milk a cow, lay a hedge, wield a pickaxe and paint watercolours (but not all at the same time). I allowed myself to begin writing fiction in 2001 and poetry in 2003.
“I always find Myfanwy’s take on things as amusing, most definitely thought provoking and layered with a sense of realities that are often missed because we never look beyond the façade, Myfanwy does dig deeper and often sees that there are a mountain of un-answered questions to be discussed.”
Mal Dewhirst, Pollysworda.
“…witty, well crafted and waspish.”
