Welcome to my website.
Writing is my work and my passion.
Through the Cutteslow Wall is my latest publication. It is a time-slip story based on the infamous walls erected in Oxford in 1934 to separate a council housing estate from private houses. It is published in The Radcliffe Legacy, the fifth anthology of stories written by Oxford Writers Group and produced by OxPens.
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.
I am currently working on a memoir based on the research I did in the Mandara Mountains of Nigeria about pregnancy and childcare customs.
