Hello, and welcome to my author website. My love of writing emerged when (for some unknown reason) I volunteered to write a parish history to raise funds for my local church. I enjoyed it so much that I decided to use the research as the basis for a historical fiction novel.   I am also developing other local history books, bringing to life some of the fascinating stories I’ve uncovered in my research.

My blog will let you see how I’m  developing my work-in-progress, providing a peek into some of the characters, locations and research. I hope you will join in the discussions, and cheer me on as I go through the process of bringing my first novel into the world.

I also write non-fiction to help school leaders manage their budgets, together with my co-author Nikola Flint. We blog on that topic at https://schoolfinancialsuccess.com, so please follow the link if you want to find out more about it.


If you’d like to hear me describe my self-publishing journey, here’s the link for the episode where I talk to Paul Teague about it:
