Hi! I’m a romantic novelist and short story writer. My short stories regularly appear in UK magazines such as My Weekly, The Weekly News, Fiction Feast and Woman’s Weekly. I’ve also been published in Irish, Australian, Swedish and South African magazines. You can find more of my stories at Alfie Dog Fiction or perhaps you’d like to download my free collection.
I’ve had some success with writing competitions, resulting in prizes such as tea with the local mayor, a silver trophy, T-shirt, dinner in the House of Commons where my poem was performed, an e-reader, books, cheques, book tokens and pens and other writerly goodies.
My debut novel Escape to the Country was first published after I won a writing competition. I’ve since published another romance, A Year and a Day and the slightly darker contemporary novel, Paint Me a Picture which is set in and around Portsmouth.
As well as writing fiction I sometimes run creative writing workshops and write articles for Writing Magazine.
