I am a writer of books for adults and children. My novels are “House of Shadows” a time slip novel. “Picking up the Pieces” a story of women of a certain age, “Shadows on the Grass” a historical novel based on the history of my family and how they came from Poland to the UK after WW2.
My children’s books include The Dragonfire trilogy for the mid-grade 8-12 age range; and my latest book “City of Secrets” for the same readership. “City of Secrets” is the first of the Adventures of Letty Parker and her friends.
I have also written plays, for professional companies and for schools and my short stories have appeared in a number of anthologies, both in the UK and the USA.
In my career, I have taught kids from 9-18 in schools and colleges, including running drama workshops downtown in Kingston, Jamaica.
I run creative writing and drama workshops in schools, museums, libraries, and most recently at the New Vic Theatre in Stoke-on-Trent.
In my spare time, I enjoy reading, gardening and baking. Muffins are a speciality.
