I live in the beautiful west country with my big, silly dog and my big sensible husband.

I spent the first half of my working life cooking and the second half editing other people's manuscripts.

At last I have time to write down the stories that have been disturbing my sleep for as long as I can remember.

Writing my first title took two years, because the characters kept doing unexpected things. I've since learned that they are always going to break out of the mould. So I just sit back and enjoy the ride.

Coffee Break Read – Mags

County Durham, England– 1642

“That was well enough done, my lord, aside that you allowed Mags his head. That one is a troublemaker. Too sure of himself and too popular with the men. He needs taking down a peg or two.”
