I was born and raised in Dorset, UK. Now live in Australia. I started writing 23 years ago, attempting a novel with my first go. When I revisited it 4 years later, I threw it away! Then I got picked for Robert Hale, followed by Simon & Schuster. Now I'm contracted to Severn House UK. Some of my earlier, out of print books are now becoming available through electronic publisher Belgrave House and affiliates. In 2002 I won the mainstream section of the Australian romantic book of the year award with my first historical romance "Daughter of Darkness."
