I was born in Sheffield and am very proud of my Yorkshire heritage. That being said, I have lived in County Durham since 1982 and that is home now.

I have always enjoyed writing and when I signed  a three book deal with Accent Press in 2015 it was  the fulfilment of a childhood dream. However, until the big deal comes my way I have bills to pay and do that by working as a charity shop manager for Barnardo’s.

When I’m not writing or working you will more than likely find me either in the kitchen or the garden as cooking and trying to tame my little patch of North East England are two of my favourite things to do. If I’m not there, I’m probably walking the dog.
