I am an independently published author, and proud to be so. Living in a little cottage in Wales in the UK, I love where I live as much as I love to write.

The age of the Tudors has been an obsession for me since I was a child, and many of my upcoming books will center on that time, but I also pen the odd dystopian fiction or historical fiction from other time periods. I will be releasing all my titles on amazon, for kindle and then hopefully for print later.

I studied Literature (with a capital L) at University and usually have twenty or more books I'm currently reading. Reading and writing are about mood for me, and I haven't found a genre I didn't enjoy something about so far...

So many beautiful ideas, a manual of self care, dealing with harmful elements in life and with a wider perspective on the world and helping others. I shall refer to it many times in the future.

Great weird read for an autumn night with a storm outside. Enjoyed the writing, beautiful. The story was a cross between a ghost story and horror, strange and creepy. Highly recommended, especially for one of those dark, and stormy, nights...

“The acquisition of knowledge is never a bad thing; it is only the choices one makes upon that knowledge that may be good or evil.”

“Dissatisfaction is the mother of all unrest. We all want to have enough, to be appreciated within our own spheres, to be seen and heard and to be treated with fairness.”
G. Lawrence, The Heretic Heir

“One day they are ours, a part of our family, our lives, as vital and colourful as every field and flower, and then one day they are a shadow, flitting at the edge of our vision, inconstant and wavering like a silhouette reflected in a sun-dappled pond in the spring light. Like”
