A mild-mannered transcription typist by day, by night I am a demon hunter, a princess, a forensic pathologist, and countless other things, depending on where my latest book and my imagination take me.

I first fell in love with books as a tiny child, when my Dad used to read Wind in the Willows to me whilst my Mum was at night school. It was my favourite time of the week, to curl up next to him on the sofa and dive into the world of Ratty, Mole, Badger and Mr Toad. As I grew up, my obsession with fictional worlds grew with me, and I was never happier than when I had my nose buried in a book. These days, as well as reading, I dream of writing a book that will inspire readers in the same way that my favourite books inspired me.
