About Me

After a varied career in academia, business and government, I’m now lucky to be a full-time writer. I live with my family in small-town Ontario, Canada, although as a dual British-Canadian citizen also call England home.

I’m the author of six contemporary romances of which the latest is Montana Reunion, a sweet western romance from Harlequin’s Heartwarming line in January 2022.

My women’s and historical fiction debut, The Sweetheart Locket, a dual timeline WW2 and contemporary novel, released from Orion Dash in March 2022. 

I’ve been a finalist for the Romantic Novelists’ Association’s (RNA) Joan Hessayon Award and Romance Writers of America’s (RWA®) Golden Heart® award. Amazon named my third book, Back Home at Firefly Lake, a ‘Best Book of the Month: Romance’ in December 2017.

In the UK, and for women’s fiction, I’m represented by Kiran Kataria at Keane Kataria Literary Agency

In the US, and for romance, I’m represented by Dawn Dowdle at Blue Ridge Literary Agency

I’m a member of the RNA and Women’s Fiction Writers Association (WFWA).
