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).

You can also chat with me on Twitter.

Book 6. This week I went down to London on the train to meet up with my writing friends, the LLs. Travelling by train meant I got lots of writing done - as well as having a fantastic time at lunch. Result!


Here we all are at the lunch table. The waiter took various pics for us using our phones and then stole the show by putting himself into one of the photos.


Round the table (starting behind the waiter): Chris Manby, Catherine Boardman, Karen Coles, Vanessa Rigg, yours truly, Kirsten Hesketh, Maddie Please and Jane Ayres. Unable to join us was our dear friend Christina Banach.


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 starting a new series on my blog, in which authors are invited to tell us more about a favourite character from one of their own books, as well as choosing a favourite character from something written by someone else. To get the series started, contemporary romance author Heidi Swain has written a guest post about two characters she loves.

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.
