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.

  • Originally posted on bdhesse:I was sitting outside of a classroom earlier today listening to the most interesting discussion. The class was talking about detective fiction and female tropes within them. They discusses the idea of the damsel in distress, and how logic and rationality are considered male characteristics. The bit that I found the…

  • So we were on our way to Fantasycon 2014 and as we were arriving a day early, which book would I take with me to tuck into, before all those new offerings tempted us once more to wallow in our book addiction? It was a no-brainer – a collapsing TBR pile uncovered this offering I’d […]

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.
