I'm a writer, see website and a voracious reader. I love to travel especially to the Greek islands and Cyprus where I have family, but everywhere too. I love to cook and invent recipes. I maybe love to eat what I cook a bit too much. I'm Greek Orthodox now, but used to be a Witch and High Priestess and run a coven. I've been writing since I was five and have now written nine books and am working on the tenth, horror this time. I love cats, but have not got any living with me just now since my little guy died in 2011 and broke my heart. I'm happily married to Chris since 1995. We have no kids. I live in central Brighton and write looking out of the window at the sea.

Sometimes I forget how long it's been since I went out. Writing is a great way to be anti social.(less)

Exclusive New Short Story

I wanted to share this brand new short story exclusively with my author page followers, but the page won't let me share such a large post, so I am posting it here instead to share the link to my page. This story was inspired by being in Menorca at the time of the Thomas Cook collapse, and also heavily influenced by one of my favourite authors J.G. Ballard. It didn't go down quite like this, but...
