In 2016, she published the award-winning The Shame of Innocence, featuring DI Jeff Lincoln, and in 2018 published a DI Jeff Lincoln short read, A Saintly Grave Disturbed. Most recently she has rewritten and published an earlier Jeff Lincoln crime novel, The Price of Silence (2019).

She’s also a founder member of Stellar Scribes, a group of novelists from Wells and Glastonbury who love to share their passion for a good yarn, mainly through talks and events in libraries.
