About Me

Award-winning British-born writer and blogger

I was born in Britain but have spent most of my life trying to figure out how America works by living there. So if you find a British flavor in my books, don’t be surprised. My memoir, Love's Journey Home, was published in May 2022, by Atmosphere Press, who will also publish my debut novel, A Beginner's Guide to Starting Over, in April 2023.

Unlike many writers, I can’t write in coffee shops because they’re too distracting, and I only drink coffee as a last resort. I live in Connecticut in a cottage that’s American on the outside, and English inside. If I'm not reading, writing, or traveling, you'll find me in my flower garden, holding a cup of my preferred beverage, strong English tea.

Check the events page for information on my monthly Meetups for writers in Connecticut, and the weekly Zoom write-ins where we write for two 45-minute sessions. It’s amazing how much writing gets done! All these events are free.

This website and the social media marketing campaign for the book launch of my memoir, came first in the 2022 Connecticut Press Club Awards, and third in the national contest.
