I'm an award-winning writer of novels, short stories and drama, particularly for children and a family audience. I have written five novels and three collections of short stories for the 8-12s.

I am the creator of the "Spirits" series of ghost novels and the fourth of these, "High Spirits" was published in October 2017 and was honoured with a win at the Georgina Hawtrey-Woore Awards. The first in the series, "Childish Spirits", was longlisted for the Bath Children's Novel Award as well as being nominated for the People's Book Prize. The second in the series, "The Spirit of London" was highly commended for the Independent Author Book Award. I also had a collection of short stories for children ("The Dinner Club and Other Stories") longlisted

“I think you should be a child for as long as you can. I have been successful for 74 years being able to do that.”
Bob Newhart

Cassandra Clare
“When you love someone, they become a part of who you are. They’re in everything you do. They’re in the air you breathe and the water you drink and the blood in your veins. Their touch stays on your skin and their voice stays in your ears and their thoughts stay in your mind. You know their dreams because their nightmares pierce your heart and their good dreams are your dreams too. And you don’t think they’re perfect, but you know their flaws, the deep-down truth of them, and the shadows of all their secrets, and they don’t frighten you away; in fact you love them more for it, because you don’t want perfect. You want them.”
Cassandra Clare, Lady Midnight
