I was born in Kent, England and then moved all over the South of Britain before spending five years in Brisbane, Australia. I’m now living back in Britain, in Derbyshire, where Jane Austen’s Mr Darcy came from. I mainly write mysteries and crime but I sometimes dabble in other genres.
When not plotting how to kill people (for the books, of course!) I can often be found trawling the aisles of my local grocery stores in pursuit of everyday items with lethal potential. Other interests include literary studies, history, cats, cooking and gardening. I published my first eBook in the Friendship can be Murder trilogy, Criss Cross, in 2013 and the follow-up, Cross Check in 2014. The third book of the Friendship can be Murder Trilogy, Check Mate, appeared in February 2016.
In 2016, I introduced my new murder mystery series set in London in the 1930s. These are very much of the classic Golden age style, and feature amateur sleuth Dottie Manderson, and police officer William Hardy. The first book was Night and Day: a Dottie Manderson mystery. Book 2 is The Mantle of God: a Dottie Manderson mystery and was released in December 2017. In 2018, novella Scotch Mist and full-length novel The Last Perfect Summer of Richard Dawlish will be added to the Dottie Manderson series.
