About me

Industry Arts
Occupation Crime Writer
Location Yorkshire, United Kingdom
Introduction Since I was 14, I have been fascinated by Anne Boleyn and Henry VIII. Small wonder then that I am writing a crime fantasy series based in an alternate Tudor history. My hero, Luke Ballard, is an apothecary and elemancer (magician who uses the elements) at the court of King Henry IX, son of Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn. I also have a contemporary detective, who, like me, sings classical soprano. Georgia Pattison is a professional early music singer who aids Superintendent Michaela Hamilton in the city of Worcester.
Interests Singing, walking dog on beach, embroidery and watercolour painting when I can find time.
Favorite Movies Anything with John Mills, war films, thrillers
Favorite Music Eric Whitacre, Patrick Hawes, Elgar
Favorite Books Wind in the Willows, espionage stuff

Your people want to make a statue in your honor. What will it be made out of and what victory will it commemorate?

It will be made from bronze and it will celebrate ridding the airwaves of reality television shows.
