Biography

I live near the sea, with my husband and a cat called Juliette. I have published short stories, poetry plays, and four novels. I also teach creative writing. My main interest is in people, their emotions, ambitions, needs and foibles. Added to this I just love researching history, so these two passions provide the inspiration for my novels and other writing.
