Biography: Having left Sheffield University with a degree in English Literature, I worked for the Telegraph Magazine, and then for the publishers George Allen & Unwin. When I then began a family I spent the next twenty years or so working at home while self-employed as a professional artist/designer. However, the lure of the world of books remained too strong to be ignored – only now, rather than returning to sit at the editorial desk I have finally found the courage to do what I always wanted to, which is to write and recreate the stories I have inside my head.

I’m married, and have one grown-up daughter. I divide my time between Windsor, East London, and Herefordshire.

Links to blog posts: As well as writing fiction, I run the historical blogs The Virtual Victorian and The Eclectic Edwardian. I’ve  also just started up a more general blog, The Fiction Fox.

I have also written articles for various online media outlets, and have had several posts featured in the national broadsheets.

Writer Superpowers (specialist subjects): I’ve spoken about my books and also on various aspects of Victorian history at libraries, literary festivals and conferences. I have appeared at the Westminster City Library, at The Victoria and Albert Museum, and also The National Gallery.

My latest novel features the earliest years of the silent film industry and when that is published towards the end of 2016, I very much look forward to discussing my research regarding that exciting time in history.
