Here is the blurb:

A family torn apart by secrets. The only way forward is love.

Maud Heaston has been in love with Beatrice Williams since they first met in 1939. They’ve been through hell and back; family, careers, and secrets have threatened to tear them apart, but their love has endured it all. Until now. Old age and illness have forced them into separate nursing homes and the family Maud trusted to take care of them are only out for themselves.

Hannah Jones is trying to put her past behind her and find her place in the world. Midway through a doctorate and living with Suki, the woman she’d like to be more than just friends with, the last thing she needs is Gammy, her interfering great aunt, back in her life. Though Gammy took Hannah in when her mother died, her overbearing nature and constant criticisms forced them apart. Now they barely speak.

Maud needs Hannah’s help to be reunited with the love of her life. Hannah needs Suki to take a chance on love. Can a reconciliation between Maud and Hannah free them both to be with the women they love or will the past destroy their future?


Of Light and Love – now available in audiobook too, narrated by the fabulous Morag Sims

Of Light and Love was published in Summer 2022. It is about the foremost artist of her generation who loses her muse when her wife dies, and can no longer paint. Of Light and Love is her re-emergence into the light, when her lodger comes along and challenges her darkness. My inspiration for this is the work of Artemisia Gentileschi and Caravaggio. It is a wlw age-gap romance that features an independent cat called Artemisia.

Judith and her Maidservant – Artemisia Gentileschi. Detroit.

Cider: work in progress

I’m also working on Cider, a novel I’ve had in my head for a while now. It deals with power and the relationship between corporate investors and small, family-owned businesses.
