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 and my debut saga, The Deserter's Daughter, is published by Allison & Busby. It is currently available in hardback and e-book. The paperback will be published in May, as will the large print edition.


The audio book is published by Soundings and is available in CD and MP3 format or as a download.


My second saga for Allison & Busby, A Respectable Woman, will be published this June in hardback and e-book, with the paperback to follow next year. It will also be published as an audiobook and in large print.




I was proud to be invited to contribute to an article in Romance Matters, the magazine of the Romantic Novelists' Association, on the New Writers' Scheme, which is a system whereby unpublished writers can have their work read and evaluated by published writers. The reader produces a critique, which highlights the book's strengths and weaknesses and gives the writer suggestions on how to improve it. Writers supporting writers is what it's all about.

My Blog:


My blogs are posted at the weekends. I write mostly about books and writing, though other subjects do creep in. I also welcome my friend Kirsten Hesketh regularly to do her popular articles following her path to publication. Do take a look and I hope you'll leave a comment if a topic interests you.


In my latest blog, I am thrilled to introduce my forthcoming book, A Respectable Woman, to you. The blog pays homage to the wonderful gothic novels of Victoria Holt. What is the connection between Victoria Holt and A Respectable Woman? Take a look and find out!

I love living in Llandudno. We've been here for almost five years now, but we still have that "Wow! We really live here," feeling.


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


Over the new few weeks, I will be adding photographs from Llandudno's annual Victorian Extravaganza. The first ones have been there since March 8th. I have now added a second lot, this time pictures of the funfair.




If you're on Twitter or Facebook and you like my photos, let me know and I'll post one in reply, specially for you.
