I love writing and love history so I suppose it's not surprising I write historical books! I enjoy writing both military history and historical fiction and the idea is to give the author royalties of any military history titles to military charities whilst proceeds from the fiction will go to me to help fund the research into both - at least that's the theory!
My military history books are all published by Pen & Sword and the historical fiction by GWL Publishing.
'Lives Apart: A World War 2 Chronicle' was inspired by the story of my in laws during WW2 and is in 5 volumes. The story was originally based on them, but I found it hard to fictionalise my in laws and have my husband's family still talk to me!
Obsession is my second 5 part saga. Set in Germany, Poland, England and Spain, the story was inspired by the thousands of Allied POWs who disappeared from Eastern Europe at the end of WW2.
Betrayed is a murder mystery set in Berlin through the 1930s and 1940s and is a stand alone book.
My latest 6 part saga is called Secret Lives and is set in England, Italy, Austria and Germany before and through the First World War.
I worked at the Military Corrective Training Centre (MCTC)in Colchester, Essex for nine years but have now moved to the beautiful countryside of North Lincolnshire with my husband David and write full time.
I have quite wide ranging interests and together with my husband David I have also written two spiritual books, The Re-Enlightenment and The Holiday from Hell.
