My writing has been described as literary character fiction and my writing style as filmic. My work broadly fits the categories of women's fiction and romance. My longer-length fiction consists of contemporary stories, with realistic settings. Plots are concerned with characters' relationships, placed in a social context, and humour is an important ingredient. I also write shorter fiction, in the genre of historical romance.
For a taster of my writing, you can read my short story, 'The Ramblers', here.
I have published three historical novelettes. 'Brizecombe Hall' (a Regency / early Victorian romance) is available from Amazon, Smashwords and their retailers. 'Danburgh Castle' (a Medieval romance) is available on Amazon. 'Rhiannon' (also a Medieval romance) is available from Amazon, Smashwords and their retailers.
There have been some great reviews of 'Brizecombe Hall' - I'm really pleased that readers appreciate that it's intended to be an homage to the Bronte sisters and Jane Austen.
'Elizabeth Clansham', a novella, is a contemporary story, set in the Highlands of Scotland. It's available to buy from Smashwords, their retailers and Amazon Kindle. "Folks who enjoy literary fiction and/or romantic fiction should enjoy it," (4 star review, March 2012).
'The Beacon Singer' is a novel, set in the English Lake District. It is available to buy from Smashwords, their retailers and Amazon Kindle. The book has been described as, "A soap opera-type story which has a variety of characters that mostly connect on some level ... each story develops as you switch in between them all to discover what happens in their lives. The gossip travels fast as it usually does in small communities," (review, July 2012).
I value feedback from readers so, if you have any comments to make on my writing, please let me know.
