Historic fiction...my beginnings!

I grew up in the South-West of England, an area rich in history and ruled over by myth. From the grandeur of Stonehenge to the mysteries of a large man-made hill, known simply as the Tor. How could I not have been inspired to write.

I decide to write a blog, not only because I want to promote my book, but also because I wanted to share with you my great passion for history and my not so great collection of photographs!

I have always...and I really do mean forever....been absolutely fascinated with the King Arthur stories. Considering where I grew up, I guess it isn't really surprising. My poor children are dragged annually around the county on the hunt for Arthur...we go to all the places where he was supposed to have been. My husband has come to except that his barmy wife has to do this at least once a year!

I have always loved writing. My parents recently cleared out their attic and handed me a whole bag full of old school books. My poor history teacher, he must have really hated me. When he asked me to write a short story about slavery, I used the whole of my book! And I have not stopped writing since.

My story is set in the Dark Ages in the year AD507, just after the fall of King Arthur and it explores what happens next through the eyes of Lancelot's Du Lac's sons. The Du Lac Chronicles is out in the spring of 2016. If you would like to find out more, please do sign up for my newsletter where you will be the first to hear the news of my upcoming book launch!

I look forward to sharing my journey with you.
