About Me



Hi and thank you for looking in on me!

My favourite genre is a contemporary family story with a touch of romance and that’s what I write.

I am a member of the Romatic Novelists’ Association and I was presented with their Elizabeth Goudge Writing trophy in July 2016.

My debut novel ‘A JARFUL OF MOONDREAMS’ is out now and available as an ebook or paperback from Amazon. It features sparring sisters, family secrets and a romance or two over an eventful summer.

When I’m not writing about families and their relationships, I read a wide range of fiction. I review for net galley and add the ones I’ve enjoyed most on this website.

Professional ReaderI live in the North East, on a beautiful stretch of Northumbrian coastline not far from the city of Newcastle, with my husband  and a Welsh terror of a terrier. The setting is used in my stories and a feisty little terrier has a cameo role in my second novel . My husband does not feature in my writing at all!

In ‘THE BARN OF BURIED DREAMS ’, published in October 2018, you meet the Doulas sisters, Erin and Heather,  who are struggling with the loss of their mother and have lost sight of their dreams . Can they support one another and make sure those dreams see daylight?

Nowadays, I’m lucky enough to spend part of each day writing and, at the moment, that is with the fascinating characters of my third novel
