Hello and welcome,



Thank you for visiting my website.

I hope you've all had a great summer and reading lots of books. As ever, I've had a busy year with school visits, lots of magazine writing and more children's books - and an adult romance in the pipeline too. I've had two more 'high-low' books published by Badger Learning. These are aimed at 12-15 year olds with a reading age of 8-9. But believe me, avid readers enjoy them too! My latest titles are: Blank and Living The Lie. In January 2017 a YA entitled Keeper will be released as part of a great new series from Badger Learning.

If you've read any of my books, you'll see that I like exciting books that keep you guessing - or that send shivers down the spine! Some other titles include Nightmare which is one of a fantastic series of Teen Reads for reluctant teen readers. It's a horror story about a boy who is being plagued by bad dreams. Weird Elspeth in his class says she can help but the situation goes from bad to worse - a lot worse!

Red Handed,Straw Men and Kicked into Touch are short illustrated books, which pack a punch! These are part of Badger Learning's fab Dark Reads series. There's also a series specially for girls which includes my book By My Side (you'll need your tissues!). And if you love reading about celebrities, check out How to Spend Like a Celebrity which is a non fiction book - all about how some celebs spend their money.


Have you read my Amazon Best Seller Celeste? Published by Astraea Press it's a time slip thriller, set in Coventry - my home city. Set in modern times and the medieval past. I hope you enjoy it. It's out as a paperback and an ebook.


If you like spooky reads, you might enjoy The Uninvited This is also published by Astraea Press.


Another recent book is The Trunk published by Penguin Australia, under the name of S.Carey (scary). It's a cute little pocket book which is part of the Eerie Series.


My book, The Beast which is the first book in a trilogy published by Usborne won the Raring2Read category in the Coventry Inspiration Book Awards 2013. A big thank you to everyone who voted for it.


A Tropical Affair first published by My Weekly is now out as an ebook and in hardback, published by Magna and available in libraries and good book shops.Champagne Harvest was first published by People's Friend (DC Thompson) and is now out as an ebook and in large print, (F.A.Thorpe Publishing).

I love writing non-fiction too. A Children's History of Coventry seems to be very popular in schools, I'm happy to say. Plus I write magazine features on absolutely anything and everything! I worked for 13 years at the Coventry Telegraph as a Feature Writer, writing specifically on food and drink, gardens, travel and pets. My Pet SOS weekly feature won the RSPCA Media Award one year, and I know the regular animal news helped many homeless cats and dogs find new homes.

It's great to help other up and coming writers and so I regularly run writing courses and workshops in Nuneaton. For anyone further afield feel free to contact me regarding one-to-one tuition online, and Writer's Surgeries. Budding writers will find my book Become A Writer. A Step by Step Guide useful. Plus I do school visits. There's more details on the school visits page.


So please browse my website, have a read of the various book extracts, and pop over to the 'kids' area too and see what's going on there.
