I have loved to read and write since childhood and, after a career in finance and HR, gave up work in 2018 to have time to focus on my creative writing. I grew up in the West Country - where both my debut novel and book two are set - and now live in Monmouthshire with my husband Andy and our two lassie collies.

The books I enjoy most have real-life characters in familiar locations and everyday situations. A narrative anyone can relate to, but where things aren't always what they seem. Books that keep me intrigued, wanting to read just one more chapter and keep me guessing until the very end. This is also what I aim to achieve in my own writing.

Both my novels are ideal for a book club or reading group. Psychological suspense combined with a murder mystery, they are easy to read yet thought provoking. Readers have said they make them ponder for a long time after they have finished, about the characters and what they would do if they were ever in the same situation(s).

I loved every single second when writing both books; hours spent in my writing shed developing believable characters and planning the twists and turns of the plots. Also researching (and reliving!) the music, fashions and food of 1976 for book one and the 1980's for book two. I sincerely hope you enjoy reading them just as much as I did creating them and I look forward to sharing more news very soon.
