Hello! Thank you for joining me on my website.

Although I’ve lived all over the world and have traveled to lots of interesting countries, the place I call home is the Wirral Peninsula in North West England. It’s on the opposite side of the River Mersey to Liverpool and the iconic ‘ferry ‘cross the Mersey’ originates here.

I’ve always loved writing, and for as long as I’ve been able to I’ve put pen to paper and told stories. As a teenager, I lived in South Africa, and my best friend and I discovered the novels of Kathleen E Woodiwiss when we were thirteen. We used to spend our evenings writing books in the style of ‘The Wolf and the Dove’ and ‘The Flame and the Flower’. When I had a big birthday (let’s just say it had a zero at the end), my friend gave me the most amazing present. She had kept one of the books I wrote when I was fourteen! It’s a medieval romance, written in felt tip pen. It’s one of my most treasured possessions.

I love reading, traveling and spending time with my family (especially my grandchildren).


And just to prove that book I wrote when I was fourteen really does exist…
