About this author

I'm a writer of women's fiction and romance. My longer works have been described as quirky romances and accessible character fiction, and my writing style has been said to be filmic. I also write shorter fiction in the genre of historical romance.

My books are available from Smashwords, their retailers and Amazon.

'Brizecombe Hall,' 'Kitty' and 'High Sea' are novelettes set in Regency and Victorian England.

'The Hangar Dance,' is a romance set in rural England during the Second World War.

'Elizabeth Clansham' is a contemporary romance, set in the Highlands of Scotland.

'The Beacon Singer,' a novel set in the English Lake D

The most striking thing about ‘Jude the Obscure’ as far as I’m concerned is how very easy it was to read, compared with most novels of comparable length written in the Nineteenth Century.
