Welcome to my website!
You will find me playing the piano, singing in a choir or gossiping with my friends (obviously essential research for my writing).
I am a member of the Romantic Novelists’ Association and the Society of Women Writers and Journalists.
My writing reflects my love of music and a tendency not to take life too seriously.
I have had a number of short stories published in The People’s Friend, Woman’s Weekly, My Weekly, Yours Fiction Special, Prima, Best, Love Sunday magazine and Saturday (Daily Express).
In 2019 my novel Love and Lies was published as a People’s Friend Pocket novel (number 883) by D C Thomson and was a contender for the Romantic Novelists’ Association Joan Hessayon Award 2019.
In 2020 Love And Lies was published by Ulverscroft as part of the ‘Linford Romance Library’ (large print, available now for libraries to buy). Love And Lies is now available to download on Amazon under its original title of Three Hundred Bridesmaids.
I have also self-published short stories and two other novels; these are all available on Amazon.
The three novels make up the Sing with the Choir collection. They aren’t a series in the way Harry Potter is (the second and third books aren’t sequels to the first), but they are grouped together because they all feature choral music and choirs. Oh, and I do believe there is a certain Tristan Proudfoot, a conductor, who pops up in all three books to a varying degree and at different ages.
Make a Joyful Noise (Sing with the Choir Book 1)
The Funny Business of Life (Sing with the Choir Book 2)
Three Hundred Bridesmaids (Sing with the Choir Book 3)
