About me

I am a writer and art historian based in Wales and France. My first novel, Almodis the Peaceweaver (Impress Books, 2011, www.impress-books.co.uk ISBN 9781907605055), is set in 11th century Toulouse and Barcelona and tells the story of the Occitan female lord, Almodis of La Marche. It was shortlisted for the Impress Prize and the Rome Film Festival Book Initiative. It received a Santander Research Award.

My second novel, The Viking Hostage (Impress Books, 2014, ISBN 9781907605598) is set in 10th century France and Wales. Like my first novel, it is based on real historical characters and incidents. The story springs from the kidnap of a French noblewoman on the night before her wedding, during a Viking raid of an island monastery.

I am one of the founders of the Ifanca Helene James Short Story Competitition http://ifancahelenejamescompetition.wordpress.com

I also write about contemporary artists and I am a keen historical fiction reader.
