Welcome to my website!


Represented by Kate Shaw of The Shaw Agency

I’m the author of four novels so far, and have alsio written a number of non-fiction (health-related books). My most recent novel, The Flight of Cornelia Blackwood, was published in hardback in February 2019  and in paperback in September 2019. This website is packed with info about me and my books. You can read reviews and keep up to date with what’s going on in my writing life by reading my blog – I aim to post every  three or four weeks, but it can be longer than that, depending on what’s going on. You can also check out my news and forthcoming events, and if you’re a budding writer yourself, there’s a selection of articles that may be of interest, and I’ll be adding to this regularly. You can also find details of my workshops, critique service, and mentoring packages.

I hope you’ll stay for a bit and have a good look around. Here’s some info about the new book.

But Marjorie’s memory is failing fast and she can’t recall what she wanted to say. Eleanor knows time is running out, and as she tries to gently uncover the truth before it becomes lost inside her mother’s mind forever, she begins to discover what really happened when she was a child – and why…
