Hi and welcome to my website.
After many years writing non-fiction now I write contemporary novels for adults, alongside a part-time role as an editor and mentor. I occasionally knock out a short story too. I spent my formative years in Wales and continue to take inspiration from the beautiful landscape of Snowdonia as well as Brighton and the south coast, where I live currently with my musician husband and ginger sons.
My first novel, BloodMining, won a competition and was published in 2011 by friendly, teeny-tiny, Bridgehouse Publishing. My second novel, Public Battles, Private Wars, was picked up by award-winning Welsh publisher, Accent Press, and published in 2014. It was the National Museum of Wales book of the month in June 2014 and has been described as Pride (the film) on the page – much to my delight.
Redemption Song, was published by Accent Press in January 2016 with my next, Skin Deep, scheduled for release in February 2017. In between there will be a second edition of BloodMining – renamed The Family Line. You can read more about the books’ journeys here.
My work is diverse, but what do all my books have in common? Emotional, compelling stories, fascinating characters, and ideas that make you think a little. At least I hope so! You can read more about them on the novels page.
Thank you for dropping by. Do take a look round or follow my adventures via my (intermittent) blog. And see you soon.
