My background is in travel and tourism and I use my experiences of living and travelling abroad and knowledge of locations as an integral part of scenes in my novels.

I have a passion for history and cultural heritage. I love to see people maintain deep-rooted traditions. Identity is an important part of us all and I believe understanding the lives of others creates respect and unity in our society.

I have written a Blog about Writing and Researching a novel and the processes involved. I think you will find it interesting and it will give you an insight into the life of a writer…

There is also a Bedtime Blog published each Sunday for 12 weeks to coincide with the launch of my second book of short stories: BEDTIME READS.

I am currently working on my next novel in the Culture Crime Series due for publication Spring 2018 with a working title: FINAL SCRIPT.
