About Me


I’m an author with a mission:

‘Real Life, Real Passion, Real Love’ ©

These are the books I create.

They are not afraid to face up to reality.

They do not shy away from passion.

The love portrayed between the pages is real, honest and raw.

Writing is my passion; I write because I have to.

It really is that simple.


I can’t remember a time when I didn’t have a book in my hands. As a child I used to hide them under the bedclothes and many a night I’d fall asleep mid-chapter, waking only when the book slipped from my grasp.

As an avid reader I’d always promised myself I’d write a book yet I had no idea if I’d be able to do it. When I read a book that I’m invested in then I’ll read the beginning before skipping to the end to make sure it finishes how I want it to. If it does, then I’ll go back and read the middle! Strange, I know! So, I figured I’d do the same when writing; craft the beginning and the end but struggle to write the middle, yet, a few years ago I surprised myself. I sat down and wrote my first full length novel and now I’m in my mid-forties, I haven’t looked back.

I’ve written a total of three novels although When Foundations Crumble is the first one to be self-published by my own publishing company, Felidae Books Ltd. I’m thoroughly enjoying my writing journey and consider myself fortunate to be able to do what I love.

When I’m not writing I’m a mum to two wonderful boys (they paid me to say that) and wife to an even more wonderful husband (yeah, he paid too). I love cats, cricket and chocolate (all the c’s) and live in the (not so) sunny climes of the UK.

Please feel free to connect with me via the contact page. I read and reply to every single email.

Thank you for your interest in me.
