I was born near Manchester and still live there now. Manchester is my favourite city and features in most of my work. I have two sons and teach creative writing at the Manchester Metropolitan University. I have written 11 books for children and 5 for adults. My fifth novel for adults is Succession, which is published in June 2014. I began writing it in 2007, so it has taken a long time! My writing is varied, but includes historical, contemporary realism and fantasy novels. Succession is set in the 15th century and is the story of Margaret Beaufort, mother of Henry VII. My interest in her began when researching a different book in Manchester Cathedral. There are fourteen stone angels in the ceiling and she is said to have donated them. The more I found out about her the more fascinated I became. She was married three times by the age of fourteen and had her only child at the age of thirteen. He was one of the more unlikely people to become King of England, but without him, or his mother the Tudor dynasty would not exist. It's a fascinating story! And the sequel is due out next year.
