I enjoy writing the internationally bestselling Geraldine Steel series of page turners, exploring the motives that drive characters, from detective to killer.

The series begins in Kent, from where my detective moves to London, and subsequently to York. Published by No Exit Press in the UK, and Harper Collins in the US, the series is so far translated into French, Italian, Turkish, German and Chinese. Following the success of the Geraldine Steel series, there is a spin off series for DI Ian Peterson.

The Lucy Hall mysteries are published worldwide by Thomas and Mercer, and my stand alone psychological thrillers are published by Bloodhound Books.

For many years a secondary school English teacher, I now write full time, and am a passionate supporter of libraries. As well as running master occasional classes in crime writing at schools and universities around Europe, including the Writers Lab in Greece, I am privileged to chair the CWA Debut Dagger judges, and to be a Royal Literary Fellow.
