My first published book was about veterinary dermatology, a rather dry text with some disgusting photographs. However, it made my name as a veterinary nurse and helped a few people understand the topic. In 2021, Veneficia Publications published my novel, The Listener, a historical romance with some magic and lots of animals. The second book in the series, The Home Straight follows a similar theme. I have also finished a romantic comedy set in a veterinary practice.

Originally, I trained as a stage manager and worked in California, Indonesia and England. However, I soon realised that animals are better behaved than actors. I re-trained as a veterinary nurse and have love the profession passionately, though I am finding it a bit more difficult these days to wrestle with rambunctious Labradors.

Currently, I live in Cornwall with two dogs, a husband and a terrifying teenager.
