About Me:
I live with my husband who's a musician - I've loyally added a couple of his songs to this site - and our two really cool children, Lana 8 and Dean 3.

I have been writing for quite a while, mostly developing a series featuring my detective Gary Goodhew.

My first book, Cambridgeshire Murders was published by Sutton Publishing in October 2005.

Since working with my agent, Broo Doherty, things have really started to come together and this year I will have two books published.

The first is with Constable and Robinson, it's called Cambridge Blue and features my series character Gary Goodhew. I'm thrilled that my detective will at last be getting his big break!

The other is a non-fiction book called Death in the Family which is being published by the History Press. It is the biography of the Billington family of hangmen, who conducted executions between 1884 and 1905. In total they executed 235 people.

I am also a script writer - check out my home made B-Movie SCREAM!... There is a crime in it! I'm currently working on the script for a zombie movie -
