About me

I was delighted, naturally, when my first novel ‘Root of the Tudor Rose’ was published by Accent Press in 2015. Since then,it has been consistently in the top ten of its category on Amazon and hit the top spot a couple of times. A number one bestseller – I can hardly believe it! I’m enormously grateful to Accent publishers (so easy to work with and such lovely cover designs!) and I’m equally indebted to the HNS for all the encouragement, information and fun I’ve had at every conference I’ve attended over the years. I’ve picked up tips, yes, but I’ve also made invaluable contacts and many, many friends. Thank you Richard … and thank you everyone. Now the next book is published. Though not strictly a sequel to the first, The Witch of Eye continues the story of the ambitious Duchess of Gloucester and tells of the loves, the lives and the lies which culminated in the most sensational treason trial of the 15th century.

Huw ap Meurig would have taken the stairs two at a time had his knees permitted it, but twenty years of hard toil on the farm had taken their toll.  So he was several steps behind us when we reached the loft, anxious to know what all the racket had…
