Profile Information







With my love for rock music and S.E.Hinton's YA novels, it's no surprise my first novel was in the motor-cycle fiction genre. In fact, my following novels are also urban thrillers. But those that have read my short story collection Heads & Tales know I'm not just a "one genre" author.

Born in the midlands UK, I grew up in a poor, rough area of town and used my writing to escape an unsettling reality. Delving deep into my characters' minds and hearts, I give my readers thought provoking and sometimes dark story-lines.

Manager of the website http://www.urban-novels.com, I have over thirty publications including book reviews, film reviews, poetry and articles.

Nominated top ten of female authors of biker fiction, my horror story Crossed, also won the first prize in an International Short Story contest. And my books have received raving reviews.

With an International fan base, you can find me on popular network sites such as Twitter, Facebook and Myspace, where I'm only too happy to interact with my readers.

I'm currently working on two new novels; Road Rage, an urban thriller about an illegal road racing motor-cycle club, and Broken Chains, a MI5 thriller.

No matter what genre of fiction I write, you'll always hear loud rock music playing while I work, as it allows me to fade away and become one with my characters.

Don't except happy endings in my novels as I write about real life. What you will get, is exciting story-lines that will have you glues to the pages and eager for more.

I live on the beautiful Island of Corfu with my Greek husband and two daughters.
