Welcome to my website …

I have always been interested in how people interact, quirks of character, and especially in what makes a good story. Even as a child I loved creating stories. On summer holidays I would often prefer to stay indoors writing rather than go to the beach! I also love research and I am constantly looking for interesting and unusual details to add into my books. But whether it be a wartime novel, or a crime adventure, my overriding aim is to entertain. One of my biggest satisfactions is to catch sight of someone on a train or a plane engrossed in one of my books. I hope you enjoy them too!
