I write. All the time. I write so much that I have more than one nom de plume, so on this site you'll find novels by Bernadette Strachan, Juliet Ashton and Claire Sandy. As Bernie Gaughan I co-write musicals with my husband, the composer Matthew Strachan, and I'm working on a sitcom with Steve Lee.
I write when I'm happy, I write when I'm morose, I write when I should be doing other things. I'm not much like George Bernard Shaw (except maybe the beard) but I do agree with him on this: "The more I work, the more I live".
