Hi all, so here's the bit where I have to talk about myself.

Well, what can I tell you? My background isn't exactly the traditional one for a writer and as a dyslexic perhaps it wasn't the easiest choice but there we go, I never was one for taking the easy option. I consider it a hindrance but never a prevention to working. I was a dancer and actor from being old enough to step out onto a stage until ten years ago when I decided to concentrate on writing for a while, and never looked back.

I studied performing arts at the Italia Conti Academy and have a degree in (this has to be the longest degree title in the world) The History of Art, Architecture and Design with Applied English Language and Linguistics (see what I mean), from Kingston University. I was co-founder and treasurer of Abingdon Writers Group in Oxfordshire from 2009 to 2017, and have a Masters in Early Modern History from the University of Reading.

I love to travel and have spent considerable time in Italy, Australia and the USA, and currently live in Malta. As well as writing fiction I am a freelance travel writer, published in various places.
My fiction varies from the vampiric and supernatural to the more regular historical drama and romance. One of my acting teachers used to say I had a grasshopper mind, I guess she was right!

Hidden Doorways time travel romance is out now in print and ebook via Amazon.
