At Writers' Cafe with copies of my novel, The Arrogance of Women

Greetings from the far west of Cornwall

I am a writer and to date have published two novels, both with Random House: A Rational Man and The Arrogance of Women.

I am currently working on two very different novels – Looking for Jonah and Queen’s Daughter

During a lifetime of personal reinvention I have been an auctioneer, an antiques dealer, a tutor in creative writing for the University of Cambridge ICE, an oral storyteller…

These days I am the co-founder of Penzance Writers’ Cafe, a trustee and organiser of the Penzance Literary Festival and also run the occasional creative writing class.

I am also a person-centred counsellor, so do feel free to visit our website to find out a little more about that side of things….

Oh and finally, I dance for the local Morris side, sing in folk clubs, play the washboard and share my life with my husband and our four cats…and, as you may have deduced from the photo, have a soft spot for birds of prey…
