I write contemporary fiction set in Birmingham and have two novels out: Deeds Not Words and Park Life. Click on their pictures to find out more. Why not sign up for my newsletter so I can send updates about my stories direct to your in box? If you'd like a peek inside my writing world this recent interview by Jane Davis gives you just that.
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. Do get in touch if you'd like me to visit your book group or event.
The brilliant Created in Birmingham team did a lovely feature on Park Life and I'm thrilled with readers' responses to my books - see what Vanity Case Books had to say about Park Life and read the reviews of Deeds Not Words at Adventures in Reading and HeavenAli. 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.
