After living in various parts of the UK, including Wakefield, York, Derby, and the Yorkshire Dales, I now live in Nottinghamshire on a Narrowboat. I enjoy reading, writing, travelling, walking, kayaking, watching all forms of motorbike racing and socialising (networking).
At the beginning of my writing journey, I started a blog which tracks the ups and downs of writing, trying to get published and self-publishing. I need to mention that my blog posts are usually visited by ‘Brackets’!
My fantasy series has a new edition; Festival of Time: Book Two: Rescue, which now joins, Festival of Time: Book One: Escape. Book three has been sent to my editor! Click ‘books’ on my website to find out more and follow me on social media for updates. I love chatting with readers and authors.
In 2021 I signed a digital publishing contract with Saga Fiction and now have three stories published on their app. Power of Nature is my latest thriller/mystery novel to be published by Saga Fiction and is available on Kindle and Kobo. Another story is coming later this year.
I am part of a wonderful writing group in Newark: Fosseway Writers.
I have a story in The Brinwade Chronicles, which is a collection of 28 Gothic stories by 13 writers. I’ve also contributed to a Fosseway collaborate novel, Burning Old School Ties and our latest anthology, Blood, Sweat and Typewriters They are all available on Amazon.
In February 2019 I was lucky enough to travel to New Zealand. During my time there I wrote a journal about our bucket list 43-day adventure. This has now been turned into a travel guide: 187 Kilometres, turn left – now available on Amazon.
A Christmas Wish, is my third self-published story, which came to life after I’d published a Game of Souls in December 2018. My short story, A night lost to the past, won third place in the Newark Book Festival 2018 writing competition, which was run by the Fosseway Writers group. This was well received, and many readers asked me to develop and expand the story. A Christmas Wish and A night lost to the past have now been reedited and have been published with Saga Fiction.
SagaFiction : One novel currently in editing / Short-story for an Anthology in progress.
Fantasy series : Book three is with my beta readers and editor – should be published late October
Fosseway project 2023 : Writing about buildings in Newark – I’m planning to write about St Mary Magdalene Church.
I’m very excited to start rewriting my psychological series, which will hopefully be published early 2023!
