Welcome to my website folks. Please feel free to poke around.

I have newsappearance dates, info about the books I’ve written, links to articles, interviews and podcasts.

There’s even interactive maps of the village of Wychwell and a tongue in cheek guide to the Yorkshire Coast.  And do call back often as I often hold competitions and pass on any book bargains I find.

If you want to know a little more about what I write, please check on the book page. At the top of every individual book page are the links which will take you straight to Waterstones, Amazon, Independent bookshops etc.

And do sign up for my newsletter – It comes out (usually) on the first of the month and is very short and chatty.  (It’s very easy to unsubscribe if you change your mind!)

My new novel, The Happiest Ever After, was published on Feb 15th and is now out in hardback, audio ebook.

Normally reserved for sword and sorcery epics, the occasional map can be useful and fun. I’ve got my web pixie to design two such occasionals…
