I've always aspired to be an author from a very young age. But normal life got in the way of my dreams and instead I qualified as a lawyer in the early 1990s. . Civil and Criminal Litigation kept me busy for the next decade, but the dream to write books was never far away - and in the summer of 2008 I began penning what was to become my first published book.

It took ten years of juggling work and home life, but in 2018 my first novel, 'The Phoenix Project', was finally born! This book would later become the first book in my London based DI Jack MacIntosh series, retitled 'Seven Days to Die.'

Fast forward to April 2022, and I achieved my dream of signing a publishing deal with the wonderful Joffe Books. With six self-published books under my belt by this time, I now face the exciting prospect of each one being republished by Joffe and reaching a far wider audience.

Seven Days To Die, the first book in my DI Jack MacIntosh series, was published on 19 January 2023, quickly followed by the next four - Fifteen Reasons to Kill, Sixteen Carved Pieces, Twenty Years Buried and Three Broken Bodies. And in May 2023 the first book in my DI Nicki Hardcastle series, Missing Boy, was released. Set in my hometown of Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk, I am extremely excited about this new series! The second book The Trophy Killer hit the shelves on 22 June 2023. 

And the fun doesn't stop there! Although I still work fulltime for the NHS - having swapped a legal career for the NHS in 2008 - more books are planned for both series!
