Why I Decided to Give Writing a Real Go

I’ve been putting off writing this post for a while, but it’s one I knew I was going to have to write eventually. I’ve wanted to share with you the real reason why I decided to give writing a go and as a natural sharer, this should have been easy for me. But it wasn’t. You see, I originally got back into writing after being redundant, which was fine. I wasn’t all...


I can’t believe today is actually here! My first book, The Little Theatre on the Seafront, is out in the world today! I’m celebrating with a little glass of bubbly over breakfast and a few tears have been shed already! Lucky doesn’t begin to cover how I feel right now. I feel blessed. I’ve enjoyed every bit of the process that’s involved in making an actual book and...

Surviving working from home in the holidays when you think you’re going crazy!

We’re now about halfway through the big school summer holidays in the UK and if you’re anything like me, that means you’re pulling your hair out trying to keep the kids occupied. If you also have to work from home, life gets even more complicated. That’s why I’ve compiled my top survival tips below to help you make the most of the time you’ve got and enjoy...

Today I can finally show you all the cover of my first book, The Little Theatre on the Seafront.   When Lottie’s Gran dies she leaves one last request; save Greenley Theatre. Faced with a decaying building, a mayor who most definitely isn’t on board with the project and a group of actors who...

PARTAY! My Night at the Harper Collins Summer Party 2018

Last night I was lucky enough to attend the Harper Collins Summer Party and even though it rained a bit (can you believe it with the weather we’ve had!) I had the most awesome time! I was really nervous to begin with. There were around a 1000 people there and I’d never met any of them before. But I’d chatted to a few authors on Facebook and Twitter, and once I recognised them I...

Writer’s arse is an actual thing!

You may not believe me, but writers arse is an actual real thing! I don’t think it’s necessarily specific to writers, in fact, I’m sure it’s common to anyone with a desk job. But the fact is when deadlines come around, healthy eating will, most likely, go out of the window. The first deadline I had caught me unawares. I wasn’t prepared for the crazy deadline-induced...

The first thing you need to know about me is, I like gin. Lots and lots of gin.
I live in the South East of England in a lovely little town by the sea and spend my time working, running around after my kids, walking our King Charles Spaniel, Wotsit, and writing!

I love history and have a Master’s degree, but have also been lucky enough to work in various castles and museums over the years. I’ve yet to get one of them into a story though – I really must try harder!
