Welcome to my website.
Writing is my work and my passion.
Growing up in the Mandara Mountains, published in June 2018, is a memoir about my daughter’s early life in a remote part of Nigeria. As well as Nigerian and ex-pat teaching colleagues we spent time with healers and traditional chiefs in remote villages finding out about local customs.
In the Line of Duty, published in 2014, was shortlisted in 2015 for the Romantic Novelists’ Association Joan Hessayon New Writers’ Award. Set in North Wales and London in the First World War, the novel draws on family memoir, historical fact and my own imagination.
Through the Cutteslowe Wall was published in 2017 in the fifth anthology of stories written by Oxford Writers Group and produced by OxPens. My stories, Through the Mist of Time and In Time for the Wake were also published in OxPens anthologies.
I have written and edited Social Studies books for Africa and the Caribbean. When I lived in Southern Africa I was a stringer for the Botswana Guardian newspaper. I have published a number of articles in British magazines.
