Who am I?
Caroline Scott Collins is my pseudonym – a combination of my middle name and my birth and married last names. I live on the western edge of Dartmoor. I have two married sons and four little grandsons who are bundles of fun.
I’ve had a variety of careers, but I dreamed of becoming a writer. This came into focus when my late husband supported me to go to university part-time whilst I was teaching computer and personal development skills as an e-tutor in adult education. Producing assignments and theses for my BA (Hons) and MA in Education and Training fanned the spark of inspiration to write, into a flame.
Since then I wrote a manuscript for my first novel, A Charming Bequest, which might be of interest to people who like steamy contemporary romances and a quest to trace a family story.
Sophie is single, in her early twenties, recently graduated and working as a freelance writer.
Her Uncle Charlie gives her a charm bracelet, which had belonged to his sister and each charm signifies a special memory or event. To please her uncle at first, and urged on by Sophie’s guiding spirits, she embarks on her research to uncover a fascinating adventure of love, loss, bravery and passion, and it sets her on the path of finding her own one true love. Had there been a jinx affecting some of her relatives?
