About me

Gender Female
Industry Advertising
Occupation Frustrated writer
Location Gloucestershire, United Kingdom
Introduction I went to art school and originally worked as an illustrator in advertising. I began writing seriously when our son was small. Though the contemporary women's fiction I write will always have a love story at its heart, my books are unpredictable, edgy and unconventional. I had my first two novels published almost immediately - Just Before Dawn and Desires & Dreams - but my publisher ceased to trade and I went independent. My books - TORN, LIFE CLASS and FLY OR FALL - are now published by Accent Press. Still a keen artist, I draw and paint and have begun book Illustration.I live in a beautiful valley in Gloucestershire, and still feel as I did when we first moved here - as if I'm on holiday and will have to return to reality some time soon. But I wouldn't be able to live the life I do without the support, emotional and financial, of my husband, Geoffrey. Now grown up, our son Thomas Williams is a curator at the British Museum and has just written his first major book, Viking Britain-An Exploration published by William Collins.
