I write YA, historical fiction, thrillers, crime fiction, romance and plays. I currently have 25 books published.
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 Festival.
I have two YA novels: Snared and Fake News. Snared explores gang culture and family issues through the character of 15 year-old Nox. Fake News explores our understanding of the media and its misinformation through 4 high schoolers’ self-run news site.
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 with PTSD, who also has severe difficulties in understanding the emotions of others and relies on body language.
I am a qualified psychotherapist. I am flexible in arranging events and workshops. I want to provide an entertaining and educational experience for my audience. I can work on longer or shorter projects.
