Born out of a need for escapism I create characters and scenarios that I hope will both lift the spirits of my readers and encourage them to follow their own dreams.
I love to write but to pay my bills (I soon discovered that utility companies, bank managers and landlords aren’t known for their generosity and understanding natures,) I had to squeeze it in with working for a living. Some of the jobs to which I only gave half my attention include working for a recording studio and a record label, running a building maintenance company where pretty much the only upside was getting to boss a lot of men about all day, doing a bit of plus size modelling (strictly clothes on) and, for one memorable summer, making a living reading palms on a Greek Island.
Thankfully, I am now able to spend much more of my time engaging in my true passion – writing. Currently, most exciting of all is my book tour for my second novel, The Love Detective: Next Level, which was published on 28th September 2019! I am attending a number of events to promote my book which you can find out all about on my events page here. As well as all this excitement, I greatly enjoy my regular appearances on BBC Radio Surrey & Sussex. I also pen columns for a variety of local newspapers and magazines, have won awards for my short stories and very much enjoy blogging.
