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).

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.


In the current blog I welcome Kitty Wilson to my blog to share two of her favourite fictional people, in the Take Two Characters series.


Future blogs include guest posts by psychological suspense writer Linda Huber and a new name in the saga world, Mollie Walton.

I am proud to be one of the Sister Scribes, along with fellow authors Jane Cable, Kitty Wilson, Kirsten Hesketh and Cass Grafton. We, and our guests, write every week in Frost, the online life-style and culture magazine.


The current blog is by Jane's guest, Alexandra Walsh, who talks about the friends who have supported her.

Living by the sea:


I love living in Llandudno. We've been here for six 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.


Last year, I added sections of photos according to theme. This year, I will be adding selections of pictures taken while out for walks.
