I've been telling stories all my life: making up serial tales to amuse my friends and children, imagining sequels to books that have moved me and left me wanting more, occasionally submitting short stories to magazines and the radio, starting more than a dozen novels set in different times and places.

I have devoted most of the last forty years to a career in commercial writing and raising a large family (most recently as grandmother-in-residence while a daughter was out of action for three years). My own personal romantic hero and I now live with two cats and frequent visitors in a small town in rural New Zealand.

I wrote and published my first historical romance in 2014, and now have the wind in my sails and a head full of strong determined heroines, heroes with the sense to appreciate them, and villains you'll love to loathe.

Current published works:
Candle's Christmas Chair
Farewell to Kindness
A Baron for Becky
Gingerbread Bride
Hand-Turned Tales (3 short stories and a novella)
