I spent a few years as an infant teacher, but when my children were young I started making picture books for them and became hooked on writing. I love drawing and painting, but my main love is writing, often using the legends and history around me as inspiration.


Fridgyth investigates again!

I didn't plan to be bringing two books out together, but that is the way that things have worked out! QUEEN OF A DISTANT HIVE is a sequel to A SWARMING OF BEES. Many kind readers asked for a second book and I tackled the story cheerfully, but then seemed to get rather bogged down and stuck halfway through. I realised that I had used up all the very best historical information about Hild's monaster Read more of this blog post »

“Why do we not stay here forever?" Myrina had once asked her grandmother, when she'd been very young.
Hati had laughed. "I wish we could, my honey-child. This place is perfect, but it wouldn't stay perfect for long if we lived here. The waters would run dry, the grazing would be used up and the ground poisoned with our mess; we'd destroy what gives us so much pleasure.”
Theresa Tomlinson, The Moon Riders

“Aben sighed. "Trojans, like Achaeans, keep their women safe at home, though I for one can't understand such foolishness; those who women ride and fight have twice as many warriors.”
Theresa Tomlinson, The Moon Riders

“Myrina remembered what her father had told her about the way the Trokans protected their women. What were they afraid of? Might their women ride away and never come back if they learned horse skills?”
Theresa Tomlinson, The Moon Riders

“Gentleman Jim [dog] was cheerful enough, partly because his owner was so well trained... He had alsot trained him to get up when he didn't want to, simply by climbing slowly and painfully on top of him and squeezing all the breath out of him as he slept. On the occasions this didn't work and Gordon seemed to be simply lapsing into a coma, Gentleman Jim would unroll his massive tongue, containing over a half a pint of drool, and dribble it slowly into his ear until Gordon finally awoke...”
Livi Michael, City of Dogs

“He's a gentle soul,' he told her. 'I can't see him put down, he wouldn't hurt a fly.' Indeed Boris wouldn't hurt a fly because in general flies were too fast for him.”
Livi Michael

“He couldn't wait to get home from school, to play with Jenny 'till bedtime, when she went to sleep on his bed and both of them dreamed wonderful dreams all night, about a boy with a face like the sun and a small white dog gleaming like a star through the early-morning mist"

-Sky Wolves, Livi Michael”
