About me

Hi there, I’ve been writing all my life and historical fiction is my passion. I have a Masters Degree in the Cultural History of Renaissance England and work as a Period Guide in Shakespeare’s Birthplace. I run a writers’ group aiming to help all our members into print.

I am currently working on a novel based on my MA dissertation. The story focuses on a female priest harbourer leading up to and during the Gunpowder Plot in England, 1605.
