Thank you for visiting my webpage. I was born and grew up in Perth, Western Australia, and I write novels set in the Second World War.

My latest novel is Ambulance Girls. It is the first in a trilogy which follows the adventures of three women ambulance drivers in the London Blitz. Ambulance Girls Under Fire will be published by Ebury Press in January 2018.

My novels set in wartime Australia are: A Stranger in My Street, Taking a Chance and A Time of Secrets.

I have degrees in Law and History, an MA in Medieval Studies and an MA in Economic and Social History (History of Medicine). I have a passion for history and after 35 years as a lawyer I am now concentrating on the much more difficult profession of writing historical fiction. I like to think that I use my research and legal skills to make my historical novels as accurate as possible, and my imagination to make them as entertaining as I can.

Although I love the clear skies, beautiful beaches and easy-going atmosphere of my home town, I also adore the dreaming spires of Oxford, UK, where I read medical history. I now see myself as a proud citizen of both Perth and Oxford and divide my time between the two.

Please take the time to look at my Blog, visit me on Facebook or check my tweets. And if you feel inclined, please drop me a line. I’d love to hear from you.
