Avril originally hails from Cumbria, England, although her Celtic roots reach back into Wales and Ireland. Maybe that's why the ancient legends of the British Isles hold such fascination for her.
Her handsome heroes are flawed, her gutsy heroines challenged, and her wicked villains...well, they are indeed quite wicked, with perhaps one or two redeeming qualities!
In her novels, Avril writes about conflict and resolution, adds in a healthy dose of romance, and a good sprinkling of magic.
Her first novel, 'Triskele' - based on the legend of the last wolf in England - is currently being revised and should be available this summer (2014).
The plot of her completed novel, 'The Cast Of A Stone', came to her while watching a rugby match between Wales and England. Unfortunately, she can't remember who won the match. She was too busy making notes.
Two more books are near completion. Watch this space!
She has also written some anthologies - short stories that she writes between book chapters to keep her mind sharp.
OH - and she welcomes reviews, comments, and questions about her books.
