Hello and welcome to my world. I hope you’ll share it with me, take the chance to look around and see something that might interest you.

If you’re wondering what this fabulous photo has to do with my writing, it is because scenes like this inspire me. And maybe you’ll be inspired too.

I’ve been asked why I write and why I’d like people to read my books. I write because a character or a story won’t lie quietly in my head, they want to be freed. I’d like people who read my books to have something precious to take away which will make their time spent reading worthwhile as well as entertaining.

My thanks to Bruce Warrington, whose photograph decorates the Front Page
