Welcome to my official website.

 

THIS IS A GREAT PLACE TO FOLLOW ME AS I EMBARK ON MY WRITING ADVENTURE. 

 

After emigrating to Australia in 2007 from Birmingham, England, I am now extremely proud to be an Australian citizen. I live on the beautiful Redlands Coast in Queensland and love being close to the water.

 

I love writing short stories and novels that examine our darkest fears but then shine a light on the hope and possibility for us all. 

My novel The Terms of Inheritance was shortlisted for the 2021 Banjo Prize and will be published by HarperCollins Publishers Australia in January 2023.

I would like to acknowledge the Quandamooka People, Traditional Owners of the lands, winds and waters we call Redlands.

The worth of a book is to be measured by what you can carry away from it. - James Bryce
