I was born and raised in Yorkshire, UK, and never expected to travel the world. But I fell for an Army Officer, and I’ve followed him from Northern Ireland, up to the Scottish Highlands, across to Africa and the Kenyan Savannah, and back to the British Cotswolds. We now live in Sarajevo, in Bosnia and Herzegovina, in Southern Europe.
Unlike most authors, I didn’t have the urge to write as I was growing up but moving around is not ideal for holding down a steady job. So I’ve taken the experiences of living in different places to write vivid and evocative cozy mystery books with determined female amateur sleuths. I have two fast growing teenage boys, and together we’ve learnt to ski on the Bosnian mountains. I also enjoy horse riding, mountain biking and I’ve started running as a way to improve my physical fitness, mental wellbeing and shed some excess pounds.
