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, was published in October 2021 and A Mosaic in time re-edited and re-published in May 2022. Both are available on Amazon or at Reborn Cafe, Creative Borders, High St., Galashiels.

Weathered and wiser, I now live and write in the Scottish Borders, where I feel 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 and Vice-Chair 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.
