I'm an author of contemporary fiction most of which is set in Birmingham. I have two novels out: Deeds Not Words and Park Life, and have a short ghost story in this anthology.
If you'd like a peek inside my writing world this interview by Jane Davis gives you just that. I've also shared the view from my writing desk with Clare Flynn. If you use Goodreads you can chat about my books there. I'd love to hear what you think so do please post your reviews online or get in touch.
As well as writing fiction, I also offer editorial services and run the PoW-WoW Writers' Group.
16th October, 6pm - Simon Fairbanks and I will be sharing hints and tips on how to self-publish and market your fiction. University of Birmingham, room to be confirmed. Free event, open to all.
17th October, 3pm - I'll be with five other fabulous authors discussing how secrets and mysteries drive compelling plots. University of Birmingham, Arts Building, Lecture Theatre 3. Free event, open to all.
I love meeting readers and am happy to attend events to talk about Deeds Not Words and Park Life, books in general, writing and anything else which crops up. I've also given talks to writers interested in self-publishing and run writing workshops. Do get in touch if you'd like me to visit your book group or event.
