I worked as a probation officer in Leeds for a number of years. I started writing crime fiction because I thought made-up criminals would be easier to manage (I was wrong).

As well as writing novels, I have written for BBC drama Doctors and my short stories and articles have appeared in various publications and anthologies, including Mslexia and Scotland on Sunday.

I’ve always loved the sea, and now live on the beautiful south Devon coast. If I’m not reading or writing, I’m probably in the garden.

The Other Woman by Laura Wilson
"And the prize for marmite book of the year goes to...!
Well, that's what I think anyway. I finished it a fair few days ago and I am still not sure whether I enjoyed it or not. The basic premise is a wee bit on the daft side and what follows just plain" Read more of this review »

"A disappointing end to a great series. I think my expectations were too high as I loved the first 2 books. I struggled through to the end but it was hard work..."
