Welcome to my website. Writing is my work and my passion. I have always been interested in recording key events in letters, journals and articles, many of which have been published in newspapers and magazines. My debut novel, In the Line of Duty, is set in North Wales and London during the First World War. It 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. I am a member of the Oxford Writers Group and OxPens, our publishing co-operative. We publish anthologies of short stories set in Oxford.
My husband, Adrian, and I worked in Africa for a number of years before returning to England where I set up a language school specialising in teaching English to European development workers preparing for overseas postings. I now use my teaching experience to run workshopsfor people interested in writing family memoir.
