Bestselling author of the Passion Noire, Rouge Passion and Orion the Hunter series
Short bio: UK based, bestselling Indie author of contemporary romance … otherwise known as elegantly filthy erotica. Coffee addict. Shoeaholic. Introvert. Prude. Teetotaler. Compulsive Liar!! Well, not about the shoes … I never lie about shoes. Nor coffee!
But, seriously … yes, I can do serious. For limited periods of time. Sometimes. If forced. Ugh … let’s get this over with so I can get back to the non-serious stuff. Life’s too short to be boring!
I love reading – almost as much as I love writing.. I relish the sheer escapism of losing myself in a book that grips me and takes me on an emotional roller coaster. I regularly mourn the passing of a good book – am I the only one who turns the pages more slowly when you don’t want a great book to end?
I love a good steamy romance and I adore sexy alpha males. I also have more than a passing interest in BDSM (nod, nod … wink, wink). One day, I put pen to paper (well fingers to keyboard, actually) and the Orion the Hunter series was born. Little did I know that, at that moment, I was sowing the seeds of change. For, just a few months later, as a somewhat bewildered Amazon Kindle bestselling Indie author, I quit my career as an education professional to write full time. Scary stuff, I think you’ll agree.
2013 was a very difficult year for me for personal reasons. It taught me how fragile life is and how important it is to grab it with both hands and ride the hell out of it. So in 2014, I began my comeback with the Amazon #1 Bestselling Erotica/Romantic Erotica bestselling series, Rouge Passion. I also met many of my favourite authors and so many lovely readers at my first signing event in Edinburgh. I flipped Stu Reardon’s kilt! Happy days …
2015 saw me signing at several more author events around the UK. I poured my heart and soul into what I consider my best series yet – Passion Noire, a three part series revolving around La Veuve Noire – a sexual therapist. But fear not, sexy alphas are still on the menu. I mean … this is me! There’s more than one sexy alpha in Passion Noire … oh and did I mention the leading alpha is a former Royal Marine? Yeah, an ex-Commando who is inked perfection – aka Jones.
A car accident in the summer left me battling a mild brain injury. I’m not yet 100% but I’m getting there. Frustratingly, my release schedule has been badly affected. Thank you for bearing with me. I’m doing all I can but acting like a senile geriatric is not conducive to writing – at least I can remember my characters’ names now so I’m heading in the right direction. Avoir, the final book in the Passion Noire series has been badly delayed but it’s almost done.
A change is afoot for 2016. I’m leaving series behind for a while, concentrating on writing standalones. The first will be The Kid’s story – and my first YA. It obviously follows on from Passion Noire but can be read as a standalone. Then, I’ve planned a second-chance themed adult standalone with a gorgeous alpha.
I hope you enjoy reading my stories as much as I enjoyed writing them. Without you guys – there would be no reason to write … actually, that’s not true. I would write … I’d have to or I think I’d go insane. But without you, it wouldn’t be anywhere near as rewarding, as fun or as scarily elating, so thank you from the bottom of my heart for supporting me and my work.

I also love receiving feedback on the retailer’s site, eg Amazon, and I’d be ever so grateful if you could spare a few minutes to do that for me when you’ve read my books.
Sorry, must dash … I’m writing … Yes, it’s hot! Yes, there’s an alpha! Yes, I’ll be sharing snippets of it when I can. And yes, I’ll be sure to let you know when it’s being released. Yes, there’ll probably be a few giveaway copies … I’ll keep you posted!
Bye for now – gotta go … this seriousness is giving me a headache. I’m off to find my unicorn … and a bottle of Jack Daniels. Catch you on the flip side!
P.S. Stay kinky!
P.P.S. Or, if you’re a confirmed vanilla, how about adding some sauce … or a few sprinkles every now and then?
P.P.P.S. The above is only a suggestion. Don’t get your ‘nilla knickers in a twist! 😉
P.P.P.P.S. Man, is this what I’m reduced to? Political correctness and all that? In the interests of not giving my publicist a coronary … let’s just agree that there’s nothing wrong with a little mint choc chip every now and then! Or a little rum and raisin. Or white chocolate and raspberry. Or honeycomb. Or … you get the idea: variety is the spice of life … who said that? Shit, now my publicist is probably having a coronary because I’ve quoted some famous dude and not referenced or sought permission. I should totally do that … but, for some reason, I really fancy an ice-cream. Vanilla whip anyone? 😉
