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). Writing as Polly Heron, I am published by Corvus (paperback and ebook) and Isis Soundings.

Latest News:


This February is officially Romance Reading Month. Not only that but this year marks the 60th anniversary of the Romantic Novelists Association.


Every day this month, a different romance writer is appearing on the Love Book Group blog. All genres of romance writing are being represented - saga, suspense, contempary, rom com, historical etc.


Here is the link to my interview: Love Books Group blog. 



My Blog:


My latest blog has been published in 2 parts - the interview I gave to Isis Soundings, my audiobook publisher. Both parts are now available to read - and the second one ends with a special piece of news of the "You heard it here first!" variety!



I am working on ...


I know The Surplus Girls was published very recently, but would you believe I'm currently at work on book 3?! Book 2 is currently waiting to be read by my editor and I hope she loves it as much as my agent did.


I have just written the first scene for a new viewpoint character. Choosing POV (point of view) characters is very important, because it makes all the difference to what the reader finds out.


Sister Scribes:



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.

Living by the sea:


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