I was born a stone’s throw from the English Channel and I still live near the sea in Kent, with my own family – so close to the South Eastern edge of England that we’re very nearly French - and it's probably why so many of my books are set near the sea too. I’ve made up stories for as long as I can remember, but never really took it any further. Concentrating on my career and family, writing went on the back burner until a catalyst called cancer gave me a major kick up the proverbial. I decided I was going to write that novel after all. Since having my debut novel published in 2015, things have happened quite quickly and I have recently released my twentieth novel. I’ve been able to fulfil a childhood dream of walking into WHSmiths and buying a book with my name on it and I still find it almost impossible to believe that my books have been bestsellers on Amazon too. I write contemporary women’s fiction, with a focus on love, friendship, family and community, when I’m not knee deep in assignments at the university where I still teach part-time. My first three novels in The Cornish Midwife series from Boldwood Books - 'The Cornish Midwife', 'A Summer Wedding for the Cornish Midwife' and 'A Winter's Wish for the Cornish Midwife' are all available from Amazon, and have been in either the Top 10 or Top 100 bestseller list. The fourth book in the series 'A Spring Surprise for the Cornish Midwife' is now available for pre-order. 'A Cornish Summer's Kiss' and 'Second Chances at Cherry Tree Cottage' from Boldwood Books are also available on Amazon and I hope to be able to share news of future books soon. My ambition to drink tea and make stuff up on a full-time basis is ever closer and if you follow me on Twitter, Instagram or my author page on Facebook, I might even say something interesting one of these days… although I wouldn’t hold your breath!
