Howdy doody.

Living in Cyprus and writing books. Loving family, friends and fitness.

Following a career of over thirty years in the British Army, My husband (Allan) and I moved to Cyprus to become weather refugees.

My books include children’s books about Jason the penguin and Barry the reindeer and ‘The Island Dog Squad’ series which is suitable for teens and adults. For more mature readers check out the aliens, afterlife, and soldier series, and my stand-alone novel about netball players.

The first book in the latest series ‘Unlikely Soldiers’ is set in nineteen seventies Britain. The second covers the early eighties and includes the Falklands War, service in Northern Ireland and (the former) West Germany. ‘Friends and Revenge’ is the third in the series, and takes a sinister turn of events. Book four sees our heroine travel from the joint headquarters in Rheindahlen to London and then Hong Kong..

‘Court Out (A Netball Girls’ Drama)’ is my stand-alone novel. Using netball as an escape from her miserable home life, Marsha Lawson is desperate to keep the past buried and to forge a brighter future. But she’s not the only one with secrets. When two players want revenge, a Tsunami of emotions is released at a tournament leaving destruction in its wake. As the wave starts spreading throughout the team, can Marsha and the others escape its deadly grasp, or will their emotional baggage pull them under, with devastating consequences for their families and team-mates?

‘Beyond Possession’, is the latest book in the Afterlife series. It’s a fast-paced supernatural thriller involving child possessions, reincarnations and telepathic twins, with angels trying to keep the Devil and his evils at bay.

‘The Island Dog Squad’ is a series of novellas inspired by the rescue dog Deb and Allan adopted in 2018. The real Sandy is a sensitive soul, not quite like her fictional namesake, and the other characters are based on Sandy’s real-life mates.

My only non-fiction book, ‘Zak, My Boy Wonder,’ was co-written with a friend whose son was born with a very rare cleft palate. They were abandoned at the last minute by the military medical authorities and the book is about getting through every day while fighting for her son’s life and the prejudices in some elements of society. ‘

I spend my time writing, hanging out with Allan, Sandy and friends, and avoiding housework.
