I can be contacted privately at

I am a foster carer living in Surrey. I love my job and have had lots of placements over the past five years. I also love writing and have been working on two crime novels over the past three years.

One of them, Lessons in the Dark, is posted on this site. I am hoping to get some enlightening reviews - it will be fascinating, and hopefully not too disappointing (!) to read other opinions of my work.

I'm always up for a read swap so feel free to message me.
