About

What do I write?

I am generally a happy and positve person, but my writing comes from  dark place. I write mostly speculative short stories and poems with horror themes that are psychologically twisty and make you think. I don't pull any punches when it comes to inspiration.

 

I started writing after my mother died when I was sixteen. It helped me cope with grief and is probably what started me on my dark fiction path. I believe in silver linings.

What do I read?

Most writers are avid readers. I love to settle into my recliner with a cup of something hot, a cat on my lap (sometimes more than one), and a great read. 

 

My favourite fiction genres are:

  • horror - the more twisty the better
  • paranormal
  • dark fantasy
  • some sci-fi - the dark, scary kind
  • lesbian fiction

My favourite non-fiction topics are:

  • WWI and WWII - particularly the role of women in warfare
  • Vampires, witches, ghosts
  • Accident investigation and disasters
  • LGBT history
  • Forensics and death investigation - both ancient and modern

A bit of history

I was born in Australia in the mid-1970s and grew up in both the city and the country, although I remain a country girl at heart. I did an honors degree in archaeology at university and then moved to England in my mid-20s.

 

I was  diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis around this time and my world changed - a lot. Getting a crippling disease was not part of my life plan, but I'd probably not be doing what I'm doing today wthout it. Another one of those silver linings.

 

I currently live in South Yorkshire, opposite a cemetery - just in case, and spend my time working at a family business, reading, writing, and looking after a clowder of rescue cats.
