About This Author

I began writing about seven years ago when I was absent from work with a frozen shoulder. Spindrift was my first attempt at a novel and then Polly's Small Town War came quickly afterwards. I was inspired by stories my mum told of war time Barton upon Humber where I was born, and then wrote Polly's Homecoming as a sequel. I have now completed Ellie, my fourth novel which is available in paperback and on Kindle.
