Stephanie Thornton (pen name). Now in my early 70s, I look back on a massive and colourful life. The German steel industry then Dentistry, followed by over 40 years in business building up my own companies including major exhibitions and working in France in later years. I'm now a Landlord to 'Special Needs' tenants in the UK. Hobbies include architecture, travel, ecclesiastical embroidery, but best of all, now hoping to make people laugh in my attempts at writing. I spend three months of the year in Thailand, every other year in Australia, semi resident in France and the UK when not globe trotting.
