Storytelling – books, TV and films. Our everyday lives are constructed through stories. Change your story and you can change so many other things. What’s your story?

All my work is based on the model of identity construction I introduced in my book Identity, Health and Women (Palgrave McMillan, 2010)

A bit about me: I am a writer from the North West of England. I am a Chartered Psychologist and Scientist and my debut psychological thriller, PERFECT TEN, was published by Corvus Atlantic Books in 2018. My second psychological thriller, HOW TO PLAY DEAD, was published in November 2019.

I also write the DS Jan Pearce crime fiction series and a speculative fiction novel SMARTYELLOW. I also write short stories and screenplays.

I have a PhD in narrative and storytelling which produced a new model in identity construction. I have worked with victims of domestic violence and families of missing people as well as heading a charity that deals with the safety and reliability of major hazards. I received an MBE for services to vulnerable people in 2013.
