Details

My children's novel, The Serpent House, is a historical time-fantasy aimed at age 8-plus. My Cousin Faustina (aged 10-plus but for reluctant readers)is a contemporary fantasy published April 2015. The publishers have produced teaching resources for both.

My teen/YA novel, The Misper, is published in March 2018. 

My two adult crime/suspense novels, In Too Deep and This Little Piggy, are published by Legend Press and inspired by my years working as a print and BBC journalist.

I am highly experienced at delivering creative writing workshops, for all age groups and abilities and I can tailor sessions as required. As a former BBC journalist I am an excellent public speaker. I have delivered academic papers to international literature conferences and writing sessions to primary school children. I am also experienced at teaching creative writing via distance learning. Feedback is always excellent. I have undergone the National Literacy Trust's TwentyFirst Century Author training on delivering dynamic school sessions.
