STAR WARS is back - Incase you hadn't heard!
In a cinema not so far, far away, I
recently saw the new Star Wars film for the second time. And I honestly think I
enjoyed it even more than I did the first time. It is pure, unassuming
unchallenging and unadorned entertainment – especially for those who s...

FANTASY BEYOND HORIZONS
A WHITE HORIZON leads us over the Arctic
Circle and into unknown ice-lands where the endless wilderness is snow bound,
and what lies beneath is hidden. The great white polar bear wanders, master of
the sea-ice, and beyond the icebergs, the whales, seals and...

Loving History
We owe so much to all the long struggle
of those who lived, suffered and battled in the past, who strived to achieve
their best, and finally died within their own developing lands and the
considerable limitations and restrictions of their society. Whatever ...

Minimalism In Word and Deed
A Advice is not a four letter word. We all like to give it, and we are often keen to search it out and follow the advice of others when we lack confidence ourselves. But as an author I have become more and more dubious regarding advice so frequently given o...

Christmas Curiositie's
In the northern hemisphere, winter can
be long, dark and bleak. In ancient times this could mean starvation. The land
froze and any remaining crops, edible roots and herbs disappeared under the
snow. Farm animals were brought under cover, or killed and thei...

The Dastardly Death Of William, Lord Hastings
It
appears that the traditional assumptions surrounding the execution of William,
Lord Hastings  in June of 1483, generally incline towards the idea
that the Lord Protector, Richard Duke of Gloucester, simply lost his temper and
so, without lawful trial or ...

The Same Door
I am standing alone. Except for the shadows, the room is empty: Dark and
sinister, they billow around me like heavy curtains in a silent wind. I am
lost, the emptiness both within and without. But I cling to hope. My hope is a doorway which stands before me...

Story
Tagline
Author
Introduction
Born in England, I grew up amongst artists and authors and started writing at a young age. I published numerous short stories and articles, and worked as an editor, book critic and reader for publishers and television companies. My first marriage produced my three lovely daughters but ended with the death of my husband.

Many adventures later, I met an Italian, fell in love, and spent 16 glorious years with him exploring Europe and sailing the Mediterranean. When he died I needed a place of solace, came to live in rural Australia, and began writing full length novels for the first time. My solace has now become my passion.
 
With a delight in medieval history dating back to my youth, I now began to research the wicked King Richard III, but quickly discovered the fascination of looking past Tudor propaganda to discover the real man. I now write principally on this era, setting my fiction in 15th century England. 

I also write fantasy, though this tends to be dark and adult, not fitting the mould of those fantasy genres popular today. No elves, fairies, vampires or evil wizards attempting to overthrow the empire.
