I am a freelance writer based in Cumbria – a rural county in North West England. Born in Kent, I was an early fan of comics and Blyton, moving on to science fiction and Jackie with equal enthusiasm. Haunting the library, I became an avid reader of eclectic, and, sometimes questionable, material. I was torn between a career in art or science, but decided I was better at the science, so studied physics at university and worked in industry after graduating.
Science is a big influence on my thinking and writing, particularly cosmology, artificial intelligence and the search for extraterrestrial intelligence – a subject that has fascinated me since girlhood. But my fiction and poetry is always rooted in human themes, and I experiment with style and form, exploring narrative approaches. I am working on collections of fiction and poetry, and have novels in the pipeline.
