Deirdre lives in Brighton with her husband and a tabby cat called Chester. She writes mainly women’s fiction with themes of family, friendship and love. Dirty Weekend and Moonshine, set in the nineteen-sixties, also have comedy along with the drama.
Deirdre’s passion for writing dates back to childhood but it was only when she joined the Romantic Novelists’ Association under the New Writers’ Scheme that she began to see the fulfilment of a life-time’s ambition. Her first novel, Remarkable Things, found a publishing deal with Crooked Cat, who then published three more of her books. She is now published independently as well as with Crooked Cat, and belongs to a publishing collective, Fabrian Books.
Deirdre is a member of the ten-strong Write Romantics and also belongs to the Brighton Beach Hut Writers. As well as novels, she writes stories for The People’s Friend.
