About

I’m a single mum and live in beautiful Devon with my son Xavier (9), and my cat, Lady Alfie. I’ve written a total of eight novels and one non-fiction book. I’m busily juggling life as a mum with writing and the Meadowbrook series is my latest project. There are two books in the Meadowbrook series so far, A YEAR AT MEADOWBROOK MANOR and the newly released SECRETS AT MEADOWBROOK MANOR.

I grew up wanting to write but took a slightly wonky path to get here. School followed by studying history at Bristol University – history is still a great passion of mine. I then moved to London, trying my hand at many jobs which I turned out not to be brilliant at. Frustrated by the fact I was sliding down more snakes than climbing the career ladder, I turned to my true love, writing. After a lot of blood, sweat and rejection, I published my first novel in 2000. I’ve been pretty much writing ever since. I daydream, I am dramatic, I am a master of procrastination, I think that shows I have found the perfect job!

I’ve lived in London, Bristol, Brighton, and Singapore but moved home to Devon, which is where I grew up to have my son. My son, who is the light of my life has Down’s Syndrome and Autism so a big passion of mine is working for awareness and acceptance. One our biggest sources of support has been the Brainwave organisation – www.brainwave.org.uk
