I've made up stories since I was a child. I loved to take characters from my favourite books or television programs and make up stories about them or continue existing stories. In fact, if I had ever published them, I'd be in flagrant breach of copyright.
My parents gave me books as soon as I was able to hold one and so my love of literature was born.
I've always had a taste for the dramatic, so Historical Fiction was perfect. It also means I get to indulge my love of Folklore and Medieval History.
My love affair with the Robin Hood legend began one day in a hidden corner of the school library and has extended into my adult life. I only hope I can convince my readers to love him as much as I do.
Away from all things literary, I am an enthusiastic theatre goer. I also play the piano for pleasure and I like to sing when I'm sure no one can hear me. I'm fond of cooking and long walks and even now I'm still a self-confessed bookworm.
Robin returns from four years fighting in the Holy Land and discovers Guy of Gisborne is Sheriff of Nottingham. Forced to flee into Sherwood, Robin sets himself up as champion of the poor. But Robin has a secret. His feelings for his friend Will Scathelock, and to acknowledge them would mean facing up to his past. Meanwhile, Lady Marian Fitzwalter is determined to claim Robin for her own.
Robin of Locksley is a rebel, more comfortable roaming Sherwood Forest with his longbow and courting the village girls than learning how to run a manor. An innocent flirtation with a peasant girl soon lands Robin in trouble, and worse, he finds himself inexplicably attracted to Will Scathelock, his best friend since childhood...
