After a thirty-plus year career as a technical writer and consultant, I gave it all up in my sixties to tell lies for a living. I am a Brummie who spent many years living in cities and large towns, but have now moved to a small semi-rural location in Devon where I see myself happily living out my days.
I write both fiction and non-fiction. My main fiction genre is currently cozy mysteries set in the fictional village of Coombesford; think Midsomer Murders set in south Devon. The first in the series, Murder at Mountjoy Manor, was published in October 2021. I am currently working on books 2 (Villainy at the Village Store, due out October 2022) and 3 (Chaos at Coombesford Church, due out spring 2023). At the same time, I am publishing a collection of short stories set in the village, Coombesford Calendar. While not necessarily crime stories, they serve as an introduction to the characters in the novels.
I am also the author of the Jones Sisters thrillers, set in the sometimes murky world of international pharmaceuticals. Finally, I write and teach on the topic of Author Business Foundations. I am a passionate believer in the legitimacy of self-publishing as an alternative to the more traditional routes, and I coach new indie authors through the first steps in the journey to publication.
In 2015, my debut novel, Gorgito’s Ice Rink, was runner up in the Self-Published Book of the Year Awards.
