About me

Member of the Society of Authors & NAWE 

I was born in Nottingham in the early sixties. As I got older, I moved further out into the countryside. Now, I live in the beautiful Vale of Belvoir but work all around the East Midlands.

I am a member of Cornerstone church, attending with my family. 

Working in schools for many years has given me an insight into children's lives and issues. I endeavour to write authentically, using realistic language. Even as a child I'd enjoy telling stories!

My YA novel called 'Get Over It' is for sale at  Onwards and Upwards Publishers and Amazon, as well. .

I was on the radio!

In October 2010, I was recorded on the local community radio. This gives details of how I became a writer and there are readings from the Young Adult novel, 'Get Over It.' This was a great experience with the Reading Room presenter Paul Tyler, from Lincoln studios based at the University campus. To hear the podcast then, go to shows and Paul Tyler in the reading room. Click on Podcast 4. Or go to Reading Room Live Podcast 10A,  46 minutes in.

Feedback from readings:

For 'Off the Beaten Track' short story May 2011, Shoreditch, London

From Arts 4 Human Rights-

'Your piece also received extremely good feedback, which I thought you would be pleased to know; and I know the other Romany focused performers were glad that you were involved, and enjoyed experiencing a further perspective on the Romany experience.'

Living in the countryside, I love to take a lot of my inspiration from the wonderful wildlife around me. I feel led to write about things that matter, so that hopefully my writing can inspire other people to think more deeply about some of these issues.

I care about the real things that affect young people and hope to reach them in realistic dialogue and relevant settings. I write in a contemporary style to click with the reader.
