About

I am the ghost writer of ‘Thy Will Be Done … Eventually!’ ‘Tears in the Dark,’ and the author of ‘The Shop on Pilgrim Street.’ I bravely self-published a book called, ‘The Diamond in You‘ and on a good month you might find one of my short stories in a national magazine.

The Senator’s Assignment’, my debut novel, was launched in 2018 and the sequel, ‘The Senator’s Darkest Days’, was launched on the day of lockdown for Covid-19, March 2020.

As my children have now flown the nest, Colin and I decided to settle in the delightful market town of Pickering in North Yorkshire, where long brisk country walks somehow end up in a village tea room, or striding across the beach or pier at Whitby demands a fish and chips at the end of the walk.

I have a mixed bag of training from secretarial work to counsellor/ spiritual director.  I am a Christian and a Methodist local preacher, but I take take speaking engagements for breakfasts – not too early please –  Christian groups and a variety of secular groups.
