I was born in England, raised in Canada and now reside in sunny Fort Myers Florida. My overactive imagination fills my mind with three dimensional puzzles of stacked what-if questions that cry out for answers. You can find me fueling my creativity amidst the chaos of a very busy life in my writer’s den where I dream up whimsical adventures that range from the satirical to the macabre.
I’m a proud member of the Florida Writers Association where I have conducted webinars and spoken at conferences on my favorite topics of Dieselpunk and Retrofuturism. I belong to the Alliance of Independent Authors. My novels, novellas and short stories are available on Amazon, BookBaby and Wattpad.
My first published novel, Tiger Paw won the 2012 Royal Palm Literary Award for Best Thriller from the Florida Writers Association. Tiger Paw blends action and intrigue with psychological suspense, and asks the questions, how far will someone go to sell his soul to the Devil? And what if the Devil seeks revenge?
My newest work, DragonFly ventures into the realm of dieselpunk, a retro-futuristic collision of science fiction and fantasy with overtones of alternative history. It won an FWA Royal Palm Literary Award in Science Fiction in 2014.
My new dieselpunk series, Missions of the DragonFly Squadron explores the incredibly turbulent times during the 1940s and the ‘what ifs’ that might have been for a generation burdened by the ravages of war. Book One DragonFly follows the journey of Veronica Somerset as she battles the odds to become Britain’s first female fighter pilot. DragonFly is not just a novel, it is a whole new world of fantastic technology, dangerous fighting machines and wizards battling across the boundary between good and evil.
My story Crystal Night, part of The Prometheus Saga anthology won Best Novella at the 2016 Royal Palm Literary Awards.
My novellas and short stories have been featured in the science fiction anthologies, The Prometheus Saga and Return To Earth as well as the horror anthology In Shadows Written.
