Thank you for visiting my website. I am a saga writer, living in beautiful North Wales. Moving here was the fulfilment of a lifelong dream, but my writing is inspired by my Mancunian roots.


I am represented by Laura Longrigg at MBA. My books are published by Allison & Busby (hardback, ebook and paperback), Magna Large Print and Isis Soundings (audiobooks).


Join me on my Facebook page. I am always delighted to accept friend requests from readers.


You can also chat with me on Twitter.

Latest News:


The Sewing Room Girl was published in NOvember in hardback and e-book (Kindle and Kobo).


Some readers have told me that they prefer to wait for the paperback before they make a purchase. The paperback will be out next May.


In the meantime, if you like to hold a physical book in your hands, perhaps you'll request it from your local library.



Currently, I am working on:


I am working through the copy-edits for my fourth book, The Poor Relation, which will be published next spring.


I am also working on book 6 - still! I had hoped to get it finished by the end of November, but I didn't quite manage it. There are a few scenes left to write.


My Blog


I post a fresh blog once a fortnight at the weekend. Generally, the posts are to do with books - writing them or reading them - but other topics also creep in. Do take a look and leave a comment if something interests you.


This week, I am delighted to welcome my dear friend Jen Gilroy to my blog to share two of her favourite book characters, one of her own and one from a book by someone else. Click on the blog tab to see her choices.

Living by the sea:


I love living in Llandudno. We've been here for five years now, but that "Wow! We really live here," feeling never goes away.


Take a look at some of my favourite photos by clicking on the Llandudno tab.


The latest section shows my favourite place in the whole world. Scroll down to the bottom of the Llandudno page to see where I mean.
