Welcome to my website!
I am an indie author with an Amazon #1 bestseller, SHADOW ACROSS THE SUN. I am also a divorced mum of two adult sons and nanna to two beautiful grandchildren. I grew up in Stoke-on-Trent, UK, but also lived in Hull and Stockton-on-Tees when first married, a very happy time. Sadly we divorced in 95 and I later became ill with ME/CFS, a very debilitating illness which forced me to resign from my job as learning support assistant in a mainstream high school - devastating!
I love writing and have developed my interest since becoming ill. I spend a lot of time on my own and writing has saved my sanity. Since I began to write seriously in 1995 I have looked at many ways of publishing my work. I quickly discarded vanity publishing as an option, it's my work, I'm not going to pay someone to publish it. I always said I wouldn't self publish on that principle then I discovered FeedARead, a print on demand publishing company who at that time were Arts Council funded. I thought it was too good to be true that they published free but it was true; they did - and do! I initially published Song of the Phoenix, quickly followed by my other books, both novels and memoir and it was so satisfying to hold them in my hand. Then came the question from my neighbour, were they available on kindle? A discovery at the bottom of an Amazon page directed me to KDP and it was a simple process to publish them electronically. Self publishing is at last coming into its own and allowing authors to achieve their goal and have their work read.
All of my titles are available in paperback from
and in kindle format from
I'd like to say a massive THANK YOU to everyone who has bought one of my books in either format. It is much appreciated and I hope that you enjoyed the story and will check out other titles. If you did enjoy it, it would be very helpful if you'd post a review on the book's amazon page please, my grateful thanks.

My aim is to earn my living as a writer. My current work in progress spans the years from 1941, the wartime years to the 1970s with a working title of Over A Spitfire. It is a story of love, loss and reincarnation with the connection of two souls. I'm not going to say more at this point and give too much away. I know exactly where I want the story to go although the ending is a bit hazy as yet but my progress is slow due to the confounded M.E. I have so many days when I don't even have the energy to think let alone write but slowly my hundreds of notes are coming together. Dare I set myself the deadline of summer 2016?
