Hi! :)

I'm a writer and Reiki healing practitioner. Clearly these are both important to me! I also love reading, being organised, visiting beautiful gardens and spending time on the moors or by the sea. I'm married, and am owned by two cats. I love chocolate and am a stationery addict.

I write with my best friend and co-author, Ron Dickerson, who's proudly Cornish. His background is in rugby, business, Rotary and Round Table. We attend our local writers' circle together; Ron is a keen poet, and of course loves reading too! He's also a pretty serious Francophile. :)

Writing our first novel, The Cordello Quest, has changed our lives. We are inspired by universal energy, the awakening of consciousness, galaxies and rivers and megaliths - and syn

I've been holding onto Hunted for a while, knowing this would be the final instalment in Maddy and Alexandre's tale. I'm glad I didn't rush into it as Hunted was worth the wait. Once again Shalini makes the past relevant to the present, the dual stor ...more

An enjoyable story, with distinctive characters (Blossom reminds me of someone, but I can't think who!), and plenty of misunderstandings, relationship ups-and-downs, and humour.
