THE CALL

ABOUT ME

I was born in Chorlton-cum-Hardy in Manchester, and spent much of my childhood reading fantasy books and exploring the dramatic local countryside fueled solely by Kendal Mint Cake and a vivid imagination.  Unsurprisingly a love of the natural world and a hint of mystery is something that often appears in my writing.
    My passion for writing started when I won a poetry competition at the tender age of seven.  Since then I have had a brief sojourn as an actress and singer touring with the wild, wonderful and unfortunately, late, Brian Behan; written screenplays, poems, short stories and four novels,

and worked as a TV and editorial journalist.  I studied English & Media at the University of Sussex and have worked in local government for the last 17 years, something which has engendered in me a passionate belief in public services and equality.

​   I live in Brighton in a loving if sometimes hectic menagerie including my husband, kids, step-kids and pets.  I go to work, write books, do some freelance journalism and relax by cooking very hot curries, going on long walks and sitting in cosy pubs.  A combination of all three would pretty much describe my perfect day!

My publisher, Authors Reach, is both an author co-operative and a publisher owned by its authors with the aim of bringing a varied collection of their books directly to readers, and to invite interaction.  The publishing arm offers a wide variety of books across several genres and from a range of authors including international bestsellers. All AR titles are available to order from all good bookshops in the UK.

As my eldest son went off to join the climate marches I started to reflect on my feelings & fears about climate change & why I wasn't talking to my kids about it.  Click on the picture to read the full article.

RECENT JOURNALISM - WHY WE NEED TO TALK TO KIDS ABOUT CLIMATE CHANGE

"I talk to my kids about sex and drugs, so why don't I talk to them about climate change?"
School reading edited.jpeg

In May I spent an amazing morning talking about what was happening in France during the violent death-throes of World War II to over 100 year six children at a local Primary school as part of their history curriculum.  I read Jean's chapter from Argemourt, which describes the terrifying morning in June 1944, when an SS Panzer division roles into his quiet French village. 

The kids listened with rapt attention and made some insightful and sensitive observations.  A genuinely moving experience.

READINGTO LOCAL SCHOOL KIDS AS PART OF THEIR WWII CURRICULUM.

It was such a privilege to read 'Jean's' chapter in Argemourt to the year 6 children at a local primary school.

After doing such a fantastic job narrating The Soul Room, the talented, multi-voiced Jac Knight of JaCh Creatives joined me again to record Return of the Morrigan.  I am also hugely grateful to The Left Outsides who gave me permission to use their sublime track 'Time Makes a Fool of us All' for the credits. Music and narrator work perfectly in bringing my dark story with its heady mix of contemporary life and ancient Pagan myth to life.

SHE'S COMING...
