About the Author

I grew up in London and Hertfordshire and studied at Exeter University. Later I did a Master’s degree at Cardiff, University of Wales.

After I married I lived briefly in the USA, Canada and Mexico.

I am based in Bristol where I worked at the University for several years. I also worked as a freelance journalist and an advertising copywriter.

I now write full time as a historical novelist.
