Me in the middle, giving an informal writing workshop

Thank you for taking the time to visit my website.

I’ve lived in an 18th-century farmhouse with my husband and various cats in the countryside of Southwest France since 1997. I’m a self-confessed history nut, and I’m lucky to live in an area that’s absolutely steeped in history. The landscapes and culture of France and Corsica provide huge inspiration for my writing.

There are three published novels so far: two in the Tales of Corsica series (and more are to follow); and the first in a trilogy set in France between 1987 and the end of World War II. Books 2 and 3 are in progress.

I also write short stories. A collection inspired by and set in France, French Collection: Twelve Short Stories, was published in 2017.

You’ll find details about all my books on the Books page.

You’d be amazed by how much literary endeavour goes on in the wilds of Southwest France! I belong to the local Parisot Writing Group and a book group. I was also a founder of the Parisot Literary Festival in 2013, now an established annual event in the literary calendar.
