Her short stories continue to appear in newspapers, magazines and anthologies.
Her debut novel, My Husband’s Sin introduces The Lacey Taylor Story, and her second novel, Don’t Call Me Mum, continues Lacey’s journey, with the final novel, No More Secrets bringing it all to an end. She plans to bring her fourth novel, To Live with a Stranger, out in the autumn of 2021.
