I write adult and older teen/early YA fiction, generally with an emphasis on supernatural/paranormal with historical reference. I am happy to run workshops, discussions, potentially interactive performance events and readings. As a former college lecturer and theatre school principal, I am experienced in working with young people and adults, and in theatre production.
I have experience of self-publishing and partnership publishing and have endured the frustrations of trying to get published and of finding an agent. I am a blogger and I have been published in local and online newpapers.
I undertook the Koestler Parapsychology course with Edinburgh University a few years ago and have had a lifelong interest in ghosts and ghost hunting. I love dogs, particularly Jack Russell Terriers, and having experienced the grief of pet loss, I have taken an interest in writing about this and my encounters with animal communicators.
My first adult book, Charon’s Children, is about Crete, a place very close to my heart. It focuses on the Island of Spinalonga, Europe’s last leper colony and the story, as might be expected, has a supernatural twist. I am therefore more than happy to engage in events relating to Crete and Spinalonga.
