Hello and welcome to my website!

I grew up in Heysham Village in Lancashire, the UK and studied history before launching a career in fundraising and marketing for International NGOs.


I have lived in London, Geneva, Rome, Bangkok and Panama

and love exploring the history and stories of the places I live.


I have a particular fascination with legends, pirates and roman history but also like reading (and writing) 'chick-lit' -- when it has a colourful cast and is set in a fabulous location (Check out The Bookshop of Panama). 

I now spend my time between New York, the UK and Rome with my husband Francesco and two cats Mimi and Bunny.

I write in my spare time.

Thank you for your interest in my books.
