I was born in London and moved to Australia in my early twenties. My working life was spent in Sydney and it was not until we retired to the Sunshine Coast in Queensland that I finished my first book, Missing in Egypt, Book 1 in the Anna Davies Mystery Series. My husband and I had visited Egypt just before we retired and it had made a huge impact on me. It is unlike any other country I have visited. The temples there are largely complete, unlike ruins in so many other countries. We cruised the Upper Nile, changed boats at Aswan and cruised the Lower Nile. We visited temples on the Upper Nile by tenders, always accompanied by an armed guard. Often we would leave before seven in the morning because the heat, even at that time, was intense. Egypt seemed to me the perfect place to set my story. The discovery of a new tomb was perfectly within the realms of possibility and the remoteness of the Valley of the Queens made it a believable setting.
My second book, Winston - A Horse's Tale was the book I really wanted to write and I enjoyed the ride! It is for horse lovers from teenagers upwards.
Dangerous Associations, my third book, saw another genre change as I penned this crime mystery. Again set in Australia, Dangerous Associations follows Cathy Thompson as she deals with a bad car accident, the end of her marriage and a stalker. Desperate to rid herself of this man who is chasing her ex-husband, Cathy flies to Spain in a crazy bid to track him down herself.
Missing at Sea, Book 2 in the Anna Davies Mystery Series is set on a cruise ship. When a woman falls overboard in the middle of the night is it suicide, murder or an unfortunate accident?
Missing in London, Book 3 in the Anna Davies Mystery Series finds Anna working in London as a Senior Editor. Her best-selling author, Arthur Hambledon, has just finished his latest book which he says “will raise some eyebrows.” Then Arthur disappears, along with the manuscript. Anna is determined to find out what has happened to him.
Like most authors, I'm an avid reader. Some of my favourite authors are:
Kate Morton, Bryce Courtney, Colleen McCullough, Mary Higgins Clark, Jeffrey Archer, Fiona Walker, Dick Francis, Elizabeth Elgin and Wilbur Smith.
When I'm not reading, writing or playing tennis I enjoy walking along our beautiful beaches or river and catching up with friends.
