About This Author

I've been writing since I was five when my parents gave me a child's Petite Typewriter, and my mum still has one of my first ever stories. I wrote consistently about horses until I was about sixteen and became interested in historical fiction. Since then I've tried many different genres, but have discovered that what I am best at is writing stories for older children. My youngest son is now sixteen and it was for him that I began my Sword of Nimueh series, as he is mildly hyperactive and has Asperger's Syndrome and I needed a story that would capture his attention. It did, so I kept on writing, initially churning out a chapter a day to a story hungry child. Of course, it took a lot longer to edit it all! I have Asperger's myself and i like horses, writing of course, history, museums and home educating my son, and I am a lifelong fan of King Arthur (my Asperger's obsession).
