My stories feature quiet men dealing with the problems life throws at them, and strong women overcoming adversity.

I write in a broad spectrum of genres, from classic westerns to historical LGBT, romance to gothic fantasy to science fiction, as well as contemporary crime, horror and mystery. But, whatever the genre or the setting, my novels end with hope for the future, and more often than not a definite HEA.

As for me? Well, I am a happily married wife, mother and grandmother, living in the north-west of England where the rain is wet and the people are friendly.

Until recently I was a specialist teacher of children between the ages of 5 and 16 in a variety of educational settings. Having taken early retirement, I now spend as much time as possible either working on my next novel, reading, or wondering what to make for dinner.
