New release! My fortieth book!!

Retribution, the eleventh book in the Dividing Line series, will be available to purchase on Amazon Kindle on 16th August 2017 priced £2.99

The Maguire-Law family is still in mourning. Jules Driscoll, an integral part of the family, survived the attack on her by the ferocious Slattery clan, however she remains locked in a coma with no sign of waking up. Their family is still topdog in Manchester, even though one of their lieutenants is fighting for her life, however Jared Slattery still lives and, despite their best efforts, they've been unable to track him down. Plus their main rival down south - Katia and her increasingly dominant crew - are restless, unsatisfied by how far they've come in such a short space of time and wanting more, especially the Maguire-Law empire.

Matters are only made worse by a traitor in the family, one who poses an enormous threat and whose actions threaten to topple their long but bloodstained reign.

My first fantasy novel is available to purchase on Amazon Kindle! Only £3.99.

I live in North Ayrshire in beautiful Scotland with my twin girls and husband Paul, although we are originally from Lancashire in the north of England. Writing has been a passion of mine since I was a child and I love writing in a variety of genres, especially historical, supernatural, crime and romance, combining and mixing them up. I am particularly interested in the Georgian and Victorian eras, 1920's and Scottish history, all of which I have set novels in.
By profession I'm a medical secretary, with experience in a variety of surgical departments.  However I left this very interesting career when I had my gorgeous and very cheeky twins, a move I have never once regretted.
When I'm not writing I love to read and I am particularly inspired by Edgar Allen Poe, the Brontes, Anne Rice, Karen Rose, Martina Cole, Ian Rankin, Stuart MacBride, Georgette Heyer and Daphne Du Maurier. I also enjoy yoga and contemporary and gothic bellydance.
I have been trying to get published for a few years now so being on Amazon feels like an exciting step forward!   Please look at my blog for new releases.
Many thanks to everyone who has downloaded my books, I hope you enjoy them. I also want to say thank you for the wonderful reviews I've received, which encourage me to keep going. Your support is greatly appreciated.
