Welcome to my website. I am an author of contemporary women’s fiction, and psychological and supernatural thrillers. Between writing novels, I write dark flash fiction and novellas-in-flash. A few years ago, I became interested in psychology and my studies have influenced my writing. When I was a teenager, reading Stephen King’s novels kept me awake till the small hours – reading and being scared!

I have a degree in literature from the University of Essex and a Masters from Manchester Metropolitan University. I taught English in secondary schools until writing full time. After growing up in Cheshire, I  now live in Shropshire in the UK with my family.  The countryside and animals have a special place in my heart.

Thanks for visiting, and please sign up to my newsletter so I can keep in touch. Lou
