About me

My first historical novel, The de Lacy Inheritance, was published my Myrmidon Books in 2010.

It was whilst I was researching for my local interest book, Tales of Old Lancashire,that I discovered the story about a hermit that was my inspiration.

I’ve always been a writer. I ‘sold’ my first article to the girls’ magazine,Diana,at the age of eleven for one pound and my first short story was published not long afterwards in Pony Annual. Since then I’ve been published in a wide range of newspapers and magazines.

In 2006 the first of my non-fiction books, Champion Lancastrians, was published by Sigma Press and since then Countryside Books have published Lancashire:Who Lies Beneath as well as Tales of Old Lancashire.

A second novel is currently under consideration by a publisher and I have two more local interest books coming out soon.
