I was born in England, near the Welsh border, and lived in several places while I was growing up, including a spell in Singapore and in Malta. Malta was where I got hooked on historical romances - my parents rented a furnished house, and the owners had left most of their books there, including a whole set of Georgette Heyer novels.

Loving Jane Austen and Georgette Heyer, I longed to write similar novels myself. I toyed with the idea several times over the years, but real life intervened and I've had several careers, including as a non-fiction author under another name. That wasn’t quite the writing career I had in mind…

So here I am, finally publishing my stories. I hope you enjoy them!

Readers of The Mrs MacKinnons might recognise the name as one of the minor characters who had a small part to play in the overall plot, and he will be the linking character in the books.

My intention is that each book can be read as a standalone story. There will be no cliffhangers. The romance in each book will be complete by the end of the book, although there may be some minor plot threads left unanswered in one story that will form part of a later novel.

The first book in the series will be Sauce for the Gander, and I'm hoping to be able to publish it by the end of the year - that's not a promise, though, as things often take longer than I think they will!

Hi Joanna - thanks for the review!
I didn't think of The Mrs MacKinnons as part of a series, but I do have one or two ideas for short stories or novellas that might include some of the characters. (A lot of people liked Richard, and I'd love to write about Webb again!). But at the moment I'm concentrating on the Marstone Series.(less)

"This story was jam packed, full of adventure and intrigue. It also has a gentle romance between two very engaging characters. Phoebe was so brave, resourceful and intelligent, despite being the put upon poor relation. The action begins in France in 1" Read more of this review »

"I very much enjoyed Playing with Fire and almost gave it 5 starts, but I hardly ever give a book 5 stars, so 4 it is. Phoebe is one of my all-time favorite female lead characters and Alex is up there in the ranks of favorite male characters as well (" Read more of this review »
