I’m a British-Canadian author writing full-time in Lincolnshire England. While I lived most of my life in Canada and the USA, I’m glad to be home!
My overactive imagination fills my mind with three dimensional puzzles of stacked what-if questions that cry out for answers. In my writer’s den, I dream up whimsical adventures that range from the satirical to the macabre while wrestling my ginger tabby Jazz for control of the keyboard.
I’m a proud member of the Florida Writers Association where I have conducted webinars and spoken at conferences on my favorite topics of Steampunk, Dieselpunk, and Retrofuturism. I belong to the Alliance of Independent Authors. My novels, novellas, and short stories are available in print and ebook with Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Apple iBooks and other major booksellers.
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?
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 Bronze Medal in Science Fiction in 2014 and the Readers’ Favorite Silver Medal in YA Action/Adventure in 2018.
My 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.
