Welcome…


Welcome to my website. I’ve had a facelift along with a change of genre. After writing paranormal romance for a few years and publishing the Magic Knot Fairies books, the demise of my publisher knocked me back a little and I wanted a fresh start. I decided to go back to my first love, contemporary romance, and since then I’ve released a variety of new contemporary romances, including Unbreak My HeartOceans Between Us, The Army Doctor Series and Italian Christmas. Alongside various boxsets with fellow Sweet Romance writers. In the tradition of Harlequin and Mills and Boon, these books are romance through and through.

Do check out my Books Page for more details on my books and if you have any questions for me just shoot me an email through my contact page.

Thanks for stopping by!

Three New Box Sets

Box sets of ebooks are all the rage right now. I have three box sets available with bundles of my books, both contemporary and paranormal.

Good News For Magic Knot Fairies

After months in limbo after Dorchester Publishing went belly up, my Magic Knot Fairies series has now been taken over by Montlake Romance, the romance publishing imprint of Amazon. The books will now be coming out again as ebooks and paperbacks. I’m also hoping they will be available as audio books.

I have my fingers crossed that I will finally be able to write the rest of the series as well. If so, there will be at least two more novels and a novella to come.

Divided Loyalties

A Clockwork Fairytale Book Cover

When someone experiences a situation where their gut instinct tells them to go against everything they have been taught and ‘break the rules’, it is always interesting to see how the person, or in the case of fiction, the character, handles the experience. They have to reconcile what they thought they knew and believed with what they are compelled to do. This is often when characters grow and learn the most.

Often this situation can arise when someone’s duty conflicts with their personal wishes or desires, as is the case in A Clockwork Fairytale. The young hero, Turk, has been taught a clear and uncompromising set of principles, one being that women are not trustworthy or even worthy at all. This belief falls apart when he meets the heroine and he starts to think for himself.

In A Clockwork Fairytale, Turk has to go against those he considers to be his olders and betters to do the right thing, but it is a difficult decision for him to make. I love putting characters in circumstances where there is no clear right and wrong and they have to make difficult choices.

A Clockwork Fairytale

A rags to riches fairytale about a lost princess and a maverick young spymaster who must foil the plans of an evil magician bent on stealing her throne.

Finally Home

As manager of the charming Greyfriar House Hotel, Melanie Marshall loves her job and spending time with her young son. But she can never forget what she ran away from: her late husband’s crimes and her own terrible guilt. Though lonely, Melanie can’t afford to let another man into her life.

But when her boss, gorgeous hotel owner Jack Summers, returns from his supposed wedding without a ring or a wife, Melanie discovers there’s more to him than she ever thought. For one, the ex-soccer star is her son’s idol. But the closer she gets to Jack, the more she pulls away. She can’t share her past. Ever.

For too long, Jack’s protected his scarred heart by letting gold-digging women make him think love didn’t matter. But a sweet single mother and a soccer-crazy little boy change everything. He knows Melanie has secrets. Secrets she’ll have to share if he’s to help her realize she’s finally home.

The Green Man


I’ve had lots of fun using Celtic mythology in my adult paranormal romances. The Magic Knot Fairies series is based on Celtic mythology along with other folk lore about fairies and mythological beings. With my latest release, I’ve returned to Celtic mythology, but this time, I’ve drawn on the ancient Celtic gods the pagans worshipped in Britain.

One of these gods is Cernunnos, who is often represented in the UK as the Green Man. He is still celebrated by some here in the spring, and is supposedly responsible for the awakening of nature after winter. When the early Christians set about converting inhabitants of Britain from paganism to the Christian faith, one of the ways they attracted people into the new churches was by adopting pagan gods. In many old churches and cathedrals in the UK, one can find carvings of the green man’s face both on the outside and inside of the buildings.

In Exeter Cathedral in Devon, there are many well known depictions of the green man. Some are beautiful, but some are also frightening, with vines and branches spewing from the green man’s mouth or body.

Cernunnos caught my imagination when I was researching my Young Adult story, Wildwood, and the mythology and ancient pagan beliefs surrounding the god are at the heart of the story.

Wildwood

A fifteen-year-old boy is sent to stay in a spooky English village with his grandfather for the summer vacation. He always knew he was different from other kids, he just didn’t realize how different until he discovers his father was linked to an ancient pagan cult. If he doesn’t get out of the village soon, he might never be able to leave.

Wildwood is available for only 99cents as an ebook on Amazon
