When I met my French husband on a Bangkok bus, I moved to France, where I have been living with my family for twenty-five years, working as a French-English medical translator, and as a novelist.
Since completing a creative writing course sixteen years ago, several of my short stories have won awards, notably the Writers Bureau annual competition of 2004 and my stories have been published widely in anthologies and small press magazines. My articles on French culture and tradition are published in international magazines such as France Magazine, France Today and The Good Life France.
I am the author of the French historical The Bone Angel series: Three French village midwife-healers. Three stories spanning six hundred years. Three women linked by an ancient bone talisman and bonded by living through turbulent times: the Black Death, the French Revolution, the WWII Nazi Occupation. Each brings its own threats and dangers, in this boxset of historical novels based on real events.
Each story can be read as a standalone.
The third in the series, The Lost Blackbird, based on real events, was published in August, 2020.
