Novelist, Memoirist and Educational Author

Welcome to my website.
Writing is my work and my passion.

Growing up in the Mandara Mountains was published in June 2018. It is a memoir based on the research I did in Nigeria on pregnancy and childcare customs after the birth of my daughter. We spent time with healers and traditional chiefs in remote villages finding out about local customs.

Coming of Age in Botswana is set mainly in Botswana from 1979 to 1985. It chronicles my work and family life  on the edge of the Kalahari Desert.

In the Line of Duty, my historical novel, was published in 2014 and was shortlisted for the Romantic Novelists’ Association Joan Hessayon New Writers’ Award in 2015. Set in North Wales and London in the First World War, the novel draws on family memoir, historical fact and my own imagination.

I am an Educational Author and have written and edited
Social Studies books for Africa and the Caribbean. When I lived in Southern Africa I was a stringer for an African national newspaper and published a number of articles in British magazines.
