About Me


Hi and thank you for looking in on me!

My favourite genre is an intriguing family story with great characters and a touch of romance and that’s what I write.

I am a member of the Romatic Novelists’ Association and I was presented with their Elizabeth Goudge Writing trophy in July 2016.

My first novel ‘A JARFUL OF MOONDREAMS’ is available as an ebook or paperback from Amazon. It features sparring sisters, family secrets and a romance or two over an eventful summer.

My second novel, THE BARN OF BURIED DREAMS is about  talented actress Erin and  her sister Heather as they struggle to come to terms with drastic changes in their lives. They have buried their dreams. Can they support one another and make sure those dreams see daylight? How does a handsome Texan help them both?

When I’m not writing about families and their relationships, I read a wide range of fiction. I review for net galley and add the ones I’ve enjoyed most on this website.

The setting is used in my stories and a feisty little terrier has a cameo role in my second novel . My husband does not feature in my writing at all!
Nowadays, I’m lucky enough to spend part of each day writing and, at the moment, that is with the fascinating characters of my third novel
