West Oxfordshire
I'm a professional writer of fantasy novels and short stories, with the occasional foray into science-fiction and darker fantasy. So far my work's been translated into 13 languages.

My first novel, The Thief's Gamble, was published in January 1999, first of The Tales of Einarinn (five in all). Southern Fire began the Aldabreshin Compass sequence in 2006. The Chronicles of the Lescari Revolution trilogy followed, consisting of Irons in the Fire in 2009, Blood in the Water, and Banners in the Wind in 2010. I have now concluded The Hadrumal Crisis trilogy; Dangerous Waters, Darkening Skies and Defiant Peaks.

I also work as a creative writing tutor from time to time and I review fantasy and SF for the Dublin-based magazine Albedo One as a contributing editor, and for Interzone as one of their team of reviewers.

I live in Oxfordshire, UK, with my husband, two teenage sons and our cat, fitting in my writing around all of this and vice versa.
