About the Author

Even as a child I read avidly, working my way along the shelves in the local library until I’d run out of books. The love of literature continued into adult life, with a degree in English Literature and Fine Art. Now, with a miscellany of careers from finance to teaching, nursery management to event management, behind me, I still read voraciously but also now write with equal passion.

I'm a B.R.A.G. Medallion honoree (https://www.bragmedallion.com/award-winning-books/thriller/patchwork-man/) for Patchwork Man, the first in my Patchwork People trilogy thriller series, self-published in 2014/15, and also for Chained Melodies (http://www.bragmedallion.com/award-winning-books/literary-fiction/chained-melodies/), the story of a transgender. I have now self-published seven fictional titles in total, plus a non-fiction book on writing. As well as writing full time, I also teach workshops on creative writing, and in 2014 was the Chair of literary festival.

I'm always delighted to swap newsletters with authors writing in similar genres to me - mystery/thrillers, literary fiction and writing theory. I also have books out on audio so audiobook promotion is of interest to me too.
