I have now secured a publishing deal! Thanks so much to all who have supported and encouraged me on Authonomy. 'When We're Least Expecting It' should be out in November 2013.

I live in Oxfordshire, UK, which is where I grew up. Widely travelled, I'm hoping to share some of my traveller's tales and experiences through my novels.
When We're Least Expecting It is my first novel. It is complete, although not all of it is posted on Authonomy.

Many thanks to Bradley Wind for the cover.
