I'm an author from Manchester in the North West of England.
My first two crime novels, following a Kindle Scout campaign, were published by Kindle Press, and my speculative fiction SmartYellowTM was published by Elsewhen Press. Then, in 2018, my agent Judith Murray secured a two book deal with Corvus Atlantic.
My debut psychological thriller, Perfect Ten, will be published in September 2018 followed by a second psychological thriller later.
Perfect Ten follows Caroline Atkinson's journey as she finally finds out what her estranged husband has been up to, and wreaks revenge.
I studied storytelling from a psychological perspective, and this interest permeates all my work and all my life. I am fascinated by the interface between the mind and the external world, the inner and the outer, and where writing sits on that interface as meaning making. In my own writing I hope that I am communicating not only words, but the silent messages that punctuate our world and bring vivid images to stories that are about people and their lives.
I also write screenplays and short stories. I am a psychologist and have worked in various capacities including missing people, domestic violence and health. In 2013 I received an MBE for services to vulnerable people.
