Introduction I live near the sea in Kent, I've written features, short fiction, pantomimes, one musical, a non-fiction book and numerous press releases. The eighth in the Libby Sarjeant series, Murder to Music, came out on April 11th 2011, the ninth, Murder at the Manor will be published in November and the tenth in May 2012. The third edition of my book How To Write a Pantomime came out last year. I have four terrific grown up children, a small grandson and an even smaller grandaughter.
Interests Reading, writing, watching murder mysteries on television, acting, going on holiday to my favourite part of Turkey, procrastinating and drinking.
