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: 

It count-down time! The Poor Relation paperback is published on November 21st.





"We have cads, crusading women, handsome doctors, an Edwardian matriarch and a rather fine ginger cat."


"A beautifully written and researched page-turner and highly recommended."


"It has more drama than a Netflix box set, together with romance, mystery, intrigue and a captivating look at the social history of the period."



The Poor Relation is available on Amazon and at The Book Depository and WH Smith.


I am working on...


I'm writing the book that will be published in October 2020 and I have to say I am absolutely loving it!


I am also about to start work on the copy-edits for the book coming out in May 2020.

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.


Here are links to the two most recent Sister Scribes blogs:


Kirsten's guest, rom com writer Maddie Please, talks about living and writing in Devon.


Cass discusses what makes Mr Darcy such an appealing character.



Here we are at the RNA Conference in Lancaster in July 2019.

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.
