I write historical fiction, thrillers, crime fiction, romance and diverse plays. I am working on a YA novel. I currently have 25 books published, and I am always writing more.
I am a part-time Teaching Fellow at Edinburgh University, designing and teaching courses in creative writing in the Continuing Learning department. I enjoy teaching writers of all abilities from age 12 upwards. I have run workshops both in my local library and at the Edinburgh International Book Fair. These have ranged from beginner writing workshops to themed events.
My Euphemia Martins series strongly features the class system before, and during, WWI. My follow on series focuses on the home front during WWII. I also write about spies and spycraft from the earlier part of the 20th century. My Daniel Truce series features a character who has severe difficulties in understanding the emotions of others and relies on body language. He is also a PTSD sufferer.
I am qualified psychotherapist. I gave up practice to write and teach full time. I am flexible in arranging events and workshops. I want to provide an entertaining and education experience for my audience. I can work on longer or shorter projects.
