I am a lifelong reader and hobby writer. Born to an English, civil-engineering family I started writing as a child when my father was posted to a country without television and only one small library, and I was obliged to entertain myself. A passion for storytelling has never stopped, and I particularly enjoy the long-form novel. I studied Arts majoring in Humanities and minoring in Media, and at University I presided over the Creative Writing Club.

I have held professional research and communication roles for many years, however my passion is creative literature in all its forms and genres.

I am a member of the NZ Society of Authors, the Historical Novel Society and Writers & Artists Yearbook UK. I’m also a subscriber to Jericho Writers, Now Novel, Novel Smithy, the Novel Factory and several social media groups about history and writing.

This would be my debut novel.
