I started writing poetry on a Buddhist Retreat in 2008 and having had some success with getting my poetry published I decided to spread my wings. I wrote my first novel, A Mosaic in Time, in 2016. At that time I was living in Essex where I’d been since returning from Australia in1976.

My second novel, The Mosaic Morphs, is on the cards to be available Winter 2021.

Weathered and wiser, I now live and write in the Scottish Borders where I feel very settled and happy.

I enjoy keeping fit, swimming, walking, playing bridge, growing veg, people watching, and writing. My days can be quite busy.

I’m currently Membership Secretary for the Borders Writers’ Forum.




Readers said when they started reading A Mosaic in Time they couldn’t put it down… And when they’d finished they wanted to know what happens next. The sequel has been 4 years in the making. I’m as happy with it as a writer can be and hope it meets their expectations.
