Thanks for visiting my Amazon Author page. Here are a few thoughts and snippets about me and the books I write.
I live in Southern England on the coast, about two roads from the seafront. It is a lovely quiet spot and ideal for writing. I walk on the cliff top most days.
However, I was born in the North of England in County Durham, but I have been here since I was six, so I think of myself as a Southern Softie now.
To keep a regular income, I work part time as a primary teacher and also as a freelance artist, mostly creating e-book covers.
Becoming an indie author has been great fun as well as lots of hard work.
I have published two children's books about a girl who can turn herself into a cat. When I get a bit of time I will add to these. I have several more Sophie Line stories in various note books. She also has her own website which has activities for children and resources for teachers.
My main focus is the Shoken Wars. This is an adult, dark-fantasy epic which has been my obsession for the past ten years. The first two books, Fragile Peace and Rise of the Fear, are out now. Book three is my current 'work in progress'. Shoken Wars will soon have its own website where I intend to provide character lists and insights about the story inspiration and the research I do in order to bring my fictional world to life.
What else? I am married to a lovely man called Paul and we have two amazing teenage daughters.
