Thank you for coming to my website, it’s lovely that you’re here.
The pages that follow are about the books I’ve written or that I’m in the process of writing, and a Titanic talk I give. In my monthly column I blog about what I’m writing, reading or thinking and what other people have written or thought, painted, made or designed: things I would love to have made, in a parallel universe where time is infinite and all things are possible.
Here are a few comments about my first two novels:
The DANCE of LOVE: ‘Outstanding … I loved it so much. At times I could hardly see the pages through my tears – and there have not been many books that have that effect on me.’
Margaret Freeman, BOOKSPLEASE
SPEAKING of LOVE: ‘Utterly and terrifyingly gripping … quite beautifully written and constructed … a completely authentic glimpse of a mind disintegrating and being redeemed … I can’t praise it highly enough.’
The DANCE of LOVE: ‘A wonderfully engaging and moving novel of love, duty, misunderstandings and reconciliations … lovers of Austen will find much to admire here … an exceptional storytelling talent.’
Simon Thomas, SHINY NEW BOOKS
SPEAKING of LOVE: ‘This is a brave and beautiful book, fearlessly and compassionately charting the terrain of mental illness.’
Victoria Best, TALES FROM THE READING ROOM
