Welcome to my website, which will introduce you to me as a writer and to the books I’ve written. To date I’ve written or contributed to well over 60 non-fiction books, both for adults and for children.

My books range from general reference and biographies through to single topic books on subjects such as human rights, women spies, suffragettes and conscientious objectors. I’m a historian, with a particular interest in women’s history.

Being a writer enables me to research into a wide range of subjects. My task is then to find the most accessible way of sharing the information I uncover with my readers. Writing and trying to find the right words can be a very frustrating occupation but I enjoy it and am very pleased that it is the work I have chosen to do.

Writing apart, I am also involved in a local women’s group, Women’s Voice. Run by women for women, Women’s Voice looks to make links with local women
