However she gave up her career when she married a diplomat and, in her own words, became "a trailing spouse". During her time living in seven different countries, she has written seven books. Her most successful, Diplomatic Baggage, was written while in her 60's and is about to republished this summer. Over lunch with Catherine Fairweather, she talks about choosing between marriage and career, her amazing recovery from a stroke 5 years ago, finding success in later life and her thoughts on getting older.
