About me

I’m the author of thirteen published novels, eight of which are historical, set in the seventeenth century and also in the reign of Richard III. History and historical fiction are my passions, and at the moment I’m researching Anglo-Saxon England, particularly around Alfred the Great and his heirs. I live in Wiltshire and as well as writing, I’m interested in art, archaeology, nature and the countryside, gardening, film and TV, current affairs and of course my two Burmese cats. I’m a voracious reader of historical fiction, and my favourite authors include Dorothy Dunnett, Patrick O’Brian, Mary Renault, Rosemary Sutcliff, Lindsey Davis, Hilary Mantel and Jude Morgan.
