Hello you! Welcome to my website!


I'm what I'd call an eclectic writer.  I write upbeat romantic women's fiction, romantic suspense and historical romance - the common thread? At their core, all my stories have a strong romantic thread.


My Passport to Love series of novels and novellas are escapist  'fish-out-of-water' stories about adventurous, hopeless yet hopeful heroines, who are not looking for love - it most definitely isn't on their itinerary - but somehow it always finds them...


I'm just embarking on a writing my first military romantic suspense novel. I used to be in the military myself, so although the stories and characters are fictional, I'm writing from experience, which is always a big bonus. And then there are my historical romances...those are in the pipeline so to speak.


On this website you can find out more about me and my writing to date.

Tis the season to be jolly! But all Holly or Clyde want is some peace on Earth … 

Burtonbridge School in the north of England might look and sound like a magical place to teach, but with Christmas fast approaching and work piling up, young Kiwi teacher, Holly Hadaway, is feeling out of place and out of her depth. 

Clyde Hunter has dropped out of university to pursue his writing dreams. Being a member of the school Grounds and Building Maintenance team should be the sort of work that allows him headspace to think and be creative. But the festive season is proving testing and one prickly teacher is about to puncture his solitary bubble when he’s tasked to fix the lock on her stationery storeroom door.

Maybe stationery storeroom is too grandiose a word. It’s more of a walk-in closet. And when Holly and Clyde find themselves locked in together, it starts to feel uncomfortably tight. 

This is the last thing they would ever wish for, but who knows, perhaps it’ll be the perfect Christmas present …
