About me

Hi there…


Copy of Your FREE Book

I am the author of a Culture Crime Series that includes GOLDEN ICONMASTERPIECE, BOOK OF HOURS, STOLEN SCRIPT and FAKING GAME. I’m currently working on the next book in the series.

I have also published a love story ELLIE BRAVO and two books of short stories: RED SHOES and BEDTIME READS.

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 lecturing at Canterbury Christchurch University (CCCU)- teaching Professional Practice 1 – and I blogged about my experience.
