Welcome

Thanks for visiting me here on my website.

I’ve wanted to be a writer since I was a child but didn’t pursue my dream until I had children of my own. Now I can’t ever imagine doing anything else but write! Historical fiction is my passion, combining the things I love – writing, history and family stories. I also love to read and I try to snatch a few spare moments whenever I’m not writing or busy with my family, to read anything from contemporary fiction to autobiography but my favourites are historical fiction and fantasy.

‘The Girl from Munich’ and ‘Suitcase of Dreams’ are inspired by the stories my grandmother told. ‘Letters from Berlin’, my most recent book, inspired by a true story and set in World War Two Germany, is an epic story of family and legacy, love and survival under the menacing shadow of the Third Reich. It’s available now! You can view the gorgeous trailer to ‘Letters from Berlin’ in the video clip above and enjoy a sneak peek in this extract below!

It was sent to her when she was in her eighties by newly… Read more
