About the Author

Life has been full to date.
Now I have a window, a pause, in which to explore my first passion - writing.

There was an old black and gold typewriter knocking about my childhood home. When I wasn't skinning my knees climbing trees or wandering aimlessly in the countryside with my dog and my dreams, I could be found, as now, typing away with imaginary friends whispering in my ear.
My first novel, The Twisted Vine, is based on a happy time picking grapes in France in the 1980s. I met some amazing people there but none as outrageous as those that sprang to life on my screen.
The next one, Daffodils, is based in Wiltshire, where I grew up. It attempts to portray how ordinary lives, and the rigid social order, were radically altered by the catalyst of the First World War. A sequel, Peace Lily is nearly finished and a third book to complete the trilogy, Speedwell, is on its way.
The next one, as yet un-named, is a ghost story. I'm just listening to the whispers from the other side to get the full picture....
