Hello and welcome! Come in, take a seat, make a cuppa and have a look around.
Most of my inspiration comes from my life experiences and the places I love, including the places I have lived. I have serialised My Life In 13 Houses, a journey through Kent in the 1950s to London, Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Cornwall and currently Norfolk. This is in the process of being serialised in the Writers and Readers Magazine available on Amazon. I plan to release it as a book in its own right in the future.
I have written and published three books to date: NO ONE COMES CLOSE a memoir, WHERE THERE’S A WILL a rom com, and BAY OF SECRETS a mystery set in Cornwall. All available on Amazon.
The memoir is very close to my heart and something I had a burning desire to write. Essentially a romance, it took me twenty years in total, from my original diaries to creating a time-slip book that crosses the years 1966 to 1987.
Although the rom-com is fictional I have drawn on elements of my past and my family history.
The family mystery is mainly set in my favourite bay in Cornwall and dips between the post-war years and the present day.
