Valley lives in Wiltshire with her husband and son.
She enjoys many hobbies like stain glass, pottery, preserves, jewellery making and her favourite gardening.
She specialises in growing chillies from all over the world. There is nothing more creative than growing your own food.
After many years of seeing her husband write his best-seller J. Glenn Bauer, Sons of Iberia series, she decided to write her own books. She is not the greatest artist but likes drawing quirky characters. All the illustrations in her books are original and self-drawn.
She enjoys family time and she and her husband are very proud of their son who is in the Royal Airforce and who married a beautiful soul called Megan.
