Welcome to my website! I hope you’ve got a beverage of choice (tea for me if it’s before 7. A white wine and soda after that). Here’s a bit about me.
My writing career began when my husband was working away (before the days of Netflix or none of us would be here reading this) and I started writing a story which finished third in Harlequin’s So You Think You Can Write contest in 2013. I was offered my first two book contract (which meant I had to admit what I’d been doing and why the house was such a tip).
I love historical fiction, mysteries, thrillers and romance and have a fondness for dark haired, bearded heroes, though I try to vary things occasionally by having the odd blonde.
I’m a Reception teacher four days a week. Unlike five year olds, my characters generally do what I ask them (and don’t come to me with suspiciously damp shoelaces).
Originally from Yorkshire, I live in Cheshire with my husband, two children and two cats with ridiculous names (the cats not the kids -though they might disagree). The car broke down there in 1999 and I never left. That’s how apathetic I am. I spend any spare time reading and I’m a pro at cooking one-handed while holding a book. I enjoy skiing, singing, and exploring tourist attractions with my family. My kids are resigned to spending their weekends visiting the past and watching me lean too far over railings to get photos. I love hot and sour soup and ginger mojitos- but not at the same time.
