About me

Occupation Writer
Location United Kingdom
Introduction I live in Cornwall UK, with a good supply of beaches and moorland right on my doorstep to keep me inspired. I live with my husband, two sons, a dog and a cat. Despite my location, I neither surf nor sail, and have never had any inclination to try. I much prefer walking along a deserted beach and listening to the waves crashing over rocks. For this reason, I really love the beach in the winter! I write dark contemporary, character-driven stories, dealing with the confusion, deceit, surprise and enjoyment of life. I love adding paranormal elements, just when the reader is least expecting it. I write mostly about relationships: romantic, parent-child, waitress-customer, killer-victim, rebellious teenager and her psyche. I am endlessly fascinated by the way people treat each other. I have been winning competitions and publishing short stories in small press journals for many years. I am the author of two books: Cat and The Dreamer (2012) and That Sadie Thing (2013). Watch out for the next one!
