I knew from a young age I wanted to work in the caring professions. I was ill quite a lot as a child and spent weeks in hospital. In those days they used to keep you in for observation, but that doesn’t happen anymore. I loved being in hospital, I loved the caring atmosphere and lapped up any medial information. I used to read a lot too. Coupled with the time I spent at my grandmother’s these were the happiest times of my childhood.
Years in Nursing
Years in Social Work
Many of my books are about social work in some way, but I do occasionally write books with my mother. ‘Meant for Each Other,’ is one of these. I wrote it when mum was poorly, she had some great plot ideas and it was published by D.C.Thomson of Dundee in their pocket novel series. I write these books using my mother’s name, Margaret. It’s also my middle name so it’s especially appropriate. I use my ordinary name, Lynne Pardoe, for my social work books.
