As a child I always had a fantastic imagination and I have enjoyed writing stories all my life. I also had a fascination for astronomy and science and would lie in bed from a very young age looking at the stars.
I joined a local astronomy group when I received my first telescope, for Christmas, seven years ago. Since then I’ve enjoyed many a night, freezing until I couldn’t stand it anymore, looking at the delights of the Universe and the magical wonders of alien worlds.
I started my career in computing, but presently I work at a college helping students who are struggling with their maths and English. The rest of my time is worked around my writing.
I live in Northumberland, England, with my husband and three cats. Whenever possible, we(not the cats) like to fit in some walking in the magnificent Northumberland and Kielder hills.
I have been writing for ten years now. In that time I have written the novella, Time Split, the novels: Distant Suns and Islands Beneath the Sea (a working title), and a number of short stories.
Time Split was the first story I wrote and published.
I strive in my writing to give you a rollercoaster ride of emotions and excitement, mixed in with a good dash of fear – all from the safety of your arm chair.
The sequel to Distant Suns, Distant Suns - The Journey Home, is due for release at the end of August 2013.
