I live in the English countryside with my husband and a menagerie of cats, dogs, and newts! I have been published since 1998 and these days I write single title Regency historicals for HQN books and historical romance for Harlequin Mills and Boon.
I developed a passion for history at an early age and nurtured it through reading and watching BBC costume dramas! I graduated in History from London and have recently been awarded a Masters in Public History from Ruskin College, Oxford.
I worked for many years in university administration, my final job being as Assistant Academic Registrar and Operations Manager before I gave it all up to be a full time author!
In my spare time I work as a guide for the National Trust at Ashdown House. Ashdown is one of my current passions and I am researching its history. I find the complementary activities of historian and author of historical fiction to be a stimulating one. My favourite way of unwinding is to take my dog for long walks in the countryside.
