Welcome

 

Whether you've pitched up by accident or on purpose - welcome to my website. Have a rootle around... Hopefully, nothing will bite or inappropriately sniff your ankles. I mostly write science fiction and fantasy, but love reading nearly anything that can be crammed between two covers. I also teach Creative Writing at Northbrook College in Worthing, West Sussex.

Bio

Born the same year as the Russians launched Sputnik, I confidently expected that by the time I reached adulthood, the human race would have a pioneer colony on the Moon and be heading off towards Mars. So I was at a loss to know what to do once I realised the Final Frontier wasn’t an option and rather lost my head - I tried a lot of jobs I didn’t like and married a totally unsuitable man.

Now I've finally come to terms with the fact that I’ll never leave Earth, I have a lovely time writing science fiction novels and teaching Creative Writing at Northbrook College in Worthing. I live in Littlehampton on the English south coast with a wonderful husband and a ridiculous number of books.
