About Me

I live in Hastings, overlooking the sea, and am a member of Hastings Quaker Meeting. I enjoy writing books which encourage people to reflect on life's bigger questions. I've written a non-fiction book that's been published by (and mainly for) Quakers. My debut novel will be published in spring 2016.

About Me

Demented blogger, book, cheese & chocolate lover, dreamer, poet, short story writer, equal marriage supporter, mental health activist, Green Party member and vicarage lawn mower — is that enough to be going on with?

I run several blogs & websites, my personal blog at philgroom.wordpress.com, the UK Christian Bookshops Directory and its associated blog — predictably named the Christian Bookshops Blog — and, most recently (March 2015), I've set up the Christian Writers Directory, which aims to help bridge the gap between readers, writers, booksellers and publishers by providing an A-Z guide to the people who make the Christian book trade possible: the writers.

As an ACW member, you can register and be listed for half the normal subscription rate: £5 rather than £10 per year; and if you're quick off the mark and register before March 31st 2015, whilst the Directory is still under construction, your first year's listing is free.

Finally, you'll find me tweeting @notbovvered @UKCBD and @ChristianWriDi - I usually follow back, and that's a certainty if you let me know that you're a fellow ACWer :)

I also love writing as a hobby and have completed a children's novel about life in Nelson's Navy which I am about to send off to an agent who has expressed an interest and, just for fun, I've been dabbling Chick Lit.

About Me

I've been a member of ACW for about 15 years, and used to be more involved when we met in central London.  As a child I enjoyed writing, and at different intervals of life written a variety of novels.  However, when the desire to combine my faith with fiction came together and 'Jane' was born I saw this could be a brilliant evangelist tool and believe God's promise that 'His Word never returns void".  I have only been published since 2007 after taking the step of 'going it alone' after Kingsway Publishing and a literary agent sent my books to 3 US publishers and they were rejected.  And so the 'Hearts Desire Series' was birthed based on Ps.37:3-4  with the strap line "Novels to romance your soul and spirit."  There are six projected books, the first three, 'Jane', 'Jill' and 'David' are all available from our website www.heartsdesireseries.com and in Kindle format from Amazon. You can read a sample chapter, but suggest if you want to read 'Jane' don't spoil the adventure because although each book stands alone, they do follow on, each in a two year interval starting in London in 1966.

About Me

I was born and brought up in south east London. As a child I was inspired by Enid Blyton. I started writing adventure stories at the age of seven; the love of writing that her stories first instilled into me has strengthened over the years.

I studied English Literature at Lancaster University, and my first permanent job was as a production secretary with the BBC. Later I lived for nearly five years in Australia. Upon my return to England, I met my future husband David.Subsequently we married and then moved to Warwickshire, where we now live with our two teenage children.

I completed two comic novels before turning to romantic suspense with "Mystical Circles". I’ve always been fascinated by the interaction of different personalities, and by human relationships. I am now nearing completion on another romantic suspense novel "A Passionate Spirit".

And my advice to anyone who wants to be a writer? Read a lot, listen to people’s conversations, closely observe every aspect of their personalities, be fascinated by human behaviour and interaction in groups, and be persistent,stubborn, single-minded to the point of obsession…never give up, always believe in yourself despite all evidence to the contrary, and hold out for what you first dreamed of.
