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.

If you are on the mailing list for Audio Update catalogues from Isis Soundings, you may already have seen this - the details for A Respectable Woman as a CD book or an MP3 book, read by the wonderful Julia Franklin. I love that cover illustration - don't you?


A Respectable Woman is also available as an Audible download.



Currently, I am working on:


Book 6. This week I introduced a new viewpoint character. He played a minor role in book 5. I had no idea then that he would have any role at all in book 6, let alone a POV (point of view) role!


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.


At the end of each month, my friend Kirsten Hesketh writes a gruest blog. Those of you who have followed these know that we have shared Kirsten's writing journeythrough the writing, editing, re-writing and submitting stages and now she has an agent and her book is being read by publishers.


The new blog is about the power of certain smells to transport you back in time.

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.


Apologies if you visited my Llandudno page while the photos were duplicated. How this happened I have no idea, but I have now cleared up the page and removed all the duplicates. I have also added some more photos to the new section. I hope you enjoy them.
