Born in Lancashire I always dreamed of becoming a writer but this was considered a rather exotic ambition so I qualified and worked as a teacher, married and had two children which left little time for writing except as a hobby.

I then ran a bookshop in the Lake District for nine years before moving out onto the remote fells for a ‘rest!’ Here I became involved in keeping sheep and hens, orphaned cats and dogs, built drystone walls, planted a small wood and even learned how to make jam. Fortunately the weather was so bad I had time to write and sold over forty short stories and articles.

I followed these with five historical romances for Mills & Boon. Using this tough life on the fells, memories of my Lancashire childhood and love of history, I went on to write family sagas and Historical Fiction for Hodder and various other publishers over the years, becoming a Sunday Times Bestselling author. I’ve also self-published some of my back list, and recently written for Amazon Lake Union. I’ve currently written almost 50 books.

I joined the RNA back in the late 1980s and enjoy attending their conferences and great parties. I’m also a member of the Society of Authors, Historical Novel Society, Society of Women Writers and Journalists, and NINC in the US.
