I was born in England but have lived in California for most of my adult life. After a career in nursing, I am now focused on creative writing. My work has appeared or is forthcoming in journals such as The Forge Literary Magazine, Ars Medica, The Copperfield Review and Stoneboat. My debut novel, When It’s Over, (She Writes Press 2017), won six Finalist Awards, including the 2018 IBPA Benjamin Franklin Silver Medal for Historical Fiction. I am currently seeking representation for my second novel, set in contemporary California.
