About Me
Ever since I was young I wanted to be a writer and now that my dream is becoming a reality, I am realizing that there is more to writing than just holding a pen and scribbling notes on paper. There is inspiration and commitment required of you if you wish to be an author. I have to say that I struggle with this a lot of the time. My ideas are always very good but honestly I'm impatient and want things done yesterday rather than taking my time and allowing the idea of a piece of writing to mull over in my mind. I've sat and thought about how I could fix this flaw of mine and it dawned on me that you can't write anything when you're not open meaning you've got to be happy or at the very least content before you pick up a pen. This got me thinking about my faith and how main source of inspiration comes from God and that my commitment is to serve him through the words I am writing. In the wee small hours of the morning I always find myself filled with ideas to write about and more often than not I have nothing to write with or on. This got me thinking - why does it always happen at this time? I guess I can't help when the inspiration strikes but I believe that its because that's when God decides to speak to me about what I should write. Either that or its just wishful thinking! I have often wondered whether or not we physically here the voice of God or is it our wishful thinking because we really want it to happen? I chose to believe in the latter. I was led to write for my local church magazine and have become a regular contributor. I have also written lyrics for hymns which have been sung by local choirs. If I can't write something for God I will not write it and with that in mind, I can think of nothing more fitting than gathering my spiritual thoughts all together in one collection to be enjoyed by everyone. Every journey has to start somewhere and my Christian life began when I was thirteen. I was in hospital in Edinburgh having spinal surgery when I finally understood what it meant to believe in God and what the power of prayer can achieve. It was not until three years later, however that I got the call to serve. On the weekend of my induction to the church I performed in a musical entitled, The Lion of Judah written by a fellow Christian that both powerfully and beautifully depicts the last days of Jesus on Earth. I felt full of inspiration and confidence in my decision to join the church community the following day. I have never forget that special weekend and how it changed me.

About Me

A storybook romance swept me from my American childhood to marriage, life and a teaching career in Yorkshire. Becoming an author seemed as likely as being a princess or an astronaut but after twenty years at the chalk-face, I left schools behind and set my mind to the dream. I’ve had several poems, short stories and articles published, won a handful of local prizes, as well as being invited to speak at events in the UK and US.

My two grown up sons have left home now but in 1996, fifteen-year-old James was diagnosed with cancer and survived against the odds. A Life Less Lost, my memoir of that experience, was published in 2009. My novel, Once Removed was published in 2012.

I’ve recently discovered the joys of grow-your-own, love ‘doing up’ old houses, lead a house group, enjoy reading, badminton, skiing and various crafts. Still captivated by the British countryside, I'm also very fond of bracing walks with my dog.

About Me

I live in Shropshire with my husband who is a Vicar in the Church of England, and our two children.

I write on the subjects of disability, chronic illness, injustice, and faith. I have a rare lung disease which is incurable and progressive. It shapes a lot of how I am and what I believe about life.

I'm working on a book about contentment in Christ as well as a couple of fiction projects.

I'm passionate about Jesus and the hope that he brings, and love to share stories about transformed lives.
