Hi, I've been a Hornsea Writer for ten years and it was the luckiest day of my life when they decided I could join the group.

In the world of work, I'be been a librarian in various establishments, including prison and public libraries in the UK. I left my final day job, as R&D Information Manager for a global pharmaceutical company, retiring early to devote my time to writing. I now have eleven books published, two of them non-fiction.

I was born in the heart of the English county of Lincolnshire, the location of the most dangerous revolt against Henry VIII in 1536. I've written stories since I was a small child, but at the age of 14 I caught the Tudor bug and it has never left me.

My love of history and crime, mixed with magic led to the creation of Luke Ballard, apothecary and elemancer at the Tudor Hampton Court Palace. The Tudor Enigma trilogy was published by Harlequin/Carina Press in 2014/2015.

My contemporary detective follows another of my passions, music. Georgia Pattison is an early-music soprano. She now features in two novellas and two full-length mysteries.

My standalone books include a Sherlock Holmes pastiche, Sherlock Holmes and the Oakwood Grange Affair and a crime story set near where I live The Angel Killer.


I have moved back to the beautiful heartland of Lincolnshire in the UK. Away from my desk, I enjoy playing the piano, singing, walking my gorgeous golden retriever and pottering in the garden.
