I’m a writer of historical mystery & romance.
On and off, I’ve been writing for over 20 years. In 2008/09, I took courses in Creative Writing at Lancaster University, with a focus on novel writing, which I now teach in south-west France. I love researching for my novels, delving into history books (my library is ever-increasing!) and visiting castles and historic sites.
At the moment, I’m working on two novels: the sequel to Dark Deceit, and the first instalment in the Loup de Foix Mysteries, a new series of historical murder mysteries set in the early 13th century at the height of the so-called Albigensian crusade against the Cathar ’heretics’ around Carcassonne, France.
I have also begun to plot a new Scottish romance for the Highland Chronicles series.
My stories have garnered praise from reviewers and readers for their authentic description of the past.
I have published four novels and a novella:
The Highland Chronicles Tales:
A Highland Captive
The Anarchy Trilogy:
A sequel due out in 2020.
Silent Deception, a novella
Love Lost in Time, a dual-timeline novel
I’m a member of the Historical Novel Society and the Alliance of Independent Authors. After many years in Scotland, I currently live in south-west France with my husband, two cats and a dog.
