I am English and recently bade a fond farewell to my forties. I have been writing stories since school when I won a parker pen for being shortlisted in a national schools writing competition.

My particular genre of choice wanders around all over the place, but has mainly settled into humorous fantasy and science fiction (or at least I think they're humorous and some people who have kindly left reviews seem to agree).

During any spare time (of which there isn't much since I'm recently widowed and dealing with two children) I edit a website focussed on science fiction television at www.scififreaksite.com and a similar blog on the side.

I then try to cram in a few books on my kindle to read.

Like the Terminator, Agent Ward will be back, but first I'm working on Norris Goes West, which is the second of the Cardinal Points Quartet that started with Spenser Goes North and, as a single parent trying to bring up two kids and an independent author with a job to pay the bills, the time that I can dedicate to writing is limited. If you could whistle up a couple of hundred thousand friends to buy the books, I could quit, hire a nanny and spend all my time writing. No? Shame. Anyway, so please that you enjoyed the books and Goodreads is the first place that I will share any upcoming news of Ward's return. I have big, and not altogether pleasant, plans for him.(less)
