I love reading and the type of fiction I write is what I like to read. So my very short stories are often tales with a twist and the longer ones explore relationships – often within a family. Most of these stories were published first in Bella, Candis and other magazines and now appear in two collections published by Endeavour Press.
My debut thriller, "Dancers in the Wind", will be published by Urbane Publications in October 2016. This book is a result of an interview I did for a national newspaper and afterwards I thought "What if..." and so my character Hannah Weybridge came into existence and she continues her life in the current work in progress, "Death's Silent Judgement" to be published in 2017 again by Urbane Publications.
Journalism has led me into diverse fields from health and beauty to travel and parenting and so just over seven years ago I founded the website: www.parentingwithouttears.com writing about what inspires (or upsets) me and hosting articles and reviews by other writers and parents. This led to two parenting guides again published by Endeavour Press.
Before that I had written three books (two for Wayland) including "Your Only Child" (Bloomsbury) plus two books about applying to and surviving university published by Need to Know.
I live in SE London and enjoy going to the theatre and cinema and socialising with friends. You can find out more about the website on twitter @ParentingWT or more about what I am up to @Anne_Coates1
