I am a journalist and author of crime fiction. My latest book, The Long, Long Afternoon, was published in February 2021 with Manilla Press and is available online and in all good book shops. My second novel, This Wild, Wild Country, will be published in August 2022.
My books are crime novels first and foremost, but I love a good dose of history as well. Historical crime fiction offers amazing opportunities to explore current issues and events through the lens of history. Just as crimes throw a spotlight on the society they take place in, the past illuminates “how we got here”. In my novels, I try to bridge past and present – while offering my readers a riveting whodunnit!
I was born in Germany but have lived in the UK for most of my adult life. My chosen home is Glasgow, and you’ll find me at many Scottish book events, including Kirkudbright Book Week and the Bloody Scotland Literary Festival. If you’d like to feature me as part of your event, book group or podcast, please get in touch.
I am a member of the National Union of Journalists, the Crime Writers Association and the Society of Authors. I started the West London Writers and am a regular participant in Shut Up and Write Glasgow.
When I am not writing I like to go hillwalking, knit and drink copious amounts of tea with milk and honey.
