About this author

I was a Primary School Teacher before leaving England to settle in Spain nearly five years ago. I previously worked in Sales, Marketing and Public Relations for large and small companies. I now write crime novels featuring Sgt Major Crane a detective in the Special Investigations Branch of the British Army, based on Aldershot Garrison. My inspiration for Sergeant Major Crane was my love of crime writing and my husband’s 22 years service in the British Army.

My children's books featuring Professor Letters and Wilhelmina the Witch are also now published in ebook format on Amazon.

I attend a lively Writing Group who unashamedly meet at beautiful beach side cafes on the Costa del Sol.

When I start a new book I do a plot arc first, then break this down into chapters, so I know what I have to achieve in each chapter to move the story forward. Because of that I rarely get writer's block - thank goodness!(less)
