A Little Bit About Me
I'm a British novelist & songwriter, born, and currently living in, the North of England. My first book 'Boundaries' was published in 1994 by a small lesbian publishing collective (sadly no longer with us) called The Dimsdale Press. Since then, I've published nine more full length novels, including my series 'The Wrong Woman Quartet'.
Since creating a soundtrack album for my novel 'Alstrom', I've continued to produce and release music under the Alstrom banner.
I think my work is fairly hard to categorise. In my novels, I'm not interested in following formulas or writing about impossibly beautiful women working their way through 'The Joy of Lesbian Sex'. There are lots of authors who can do that so much better than me.
My stories tend to be about ordinary people facing challenges in their lives.
Like all of us, they make mistakes. They laugh and cry and learn things the hard way.
Friendship is important to them, as it is to me. In general, they're trying to be kind.
My music also seems to not fit easily into any particular genre. Here's an example of one of Alstrom's recent tracks....
