I am a writer first and foremost. As soon as I could I retired from teaching in order to write full-time. Honno published ‘Lottie’, in 1997. In the same year my second novel, ‘Someone to Watch Over Me’ was published by Piatkus, followed, the next year by its sequel, ‘Wrong Way Up the Slide’. The third in the Potter family series, ‘A Lazy Eye’, came out in 2000. These three were reviewed by HNS back when I was a member. Honno published ‘Skin Deep’, a contemporary thriller, in November 2004, and my third novel with Honno, ‘The Colours of Corruption’ a Victorian crime story, comes out in January 2013.
